Charlottetown, PEI (January 24, 2018)— UPEI Women's Basketball Head Coach Greg Gould is pleased to announce that Abby Lacey has committed to the Panthers for the 2018–19 season. Lacey is a 5'7" guard from Riverview, New Brunswick who has been a three year-starter for the Riverview High School Royals, leading her team to the New Brunswick High School provincial final last season.
"I am very excited to be joining the UPEI Panthers," said Lacey. "Their style of play is very fast, which I feel will be a good fit for my game. I am looking forward to the challenges of playing at the next level, continuing to develop my skills, and contributing to the team in any way I can."
Lacey was drawn to UPEI's Department of Psychology and is excited to be part of the close-knit campus and Island communities.
"I have followed Abby's basketball career for the past three years, and I am excited to have her join our program," said Gould. "She is dynamic player—fast, quick and very strong. Abby is a natural scorer, who can attack the basket, pull-up, or shoot the three. She is a very good student, a hard worker, and a great team player who I see making an immediate contribution. I look forward to helping her achieve her academic and basketball goals."
Lacey has been accepted into the UPEI Faculty of Arts. Go Panthers Go!
