BLOG: York High grad Freeland to play in Romania
After a standout career at Edinboro University, York High grad Aignee' Freeland has signed a contract to play professional women's basketball with ICIM ARAD in Romania.
Freeland will depart in mid-August and play in the Romanian League until March of 2017.
The Flash Agency release announcing Freeland's signing commented, "Aignee' is a very good post player with great moves inside the key and a good middle range shoot. On her advantages as a player we can add her athleticism, the good timing for rebounding and the ability to block shoots."
The 6-foot, 3-inch Freeland leaves Edinboro as a three-time All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West Division selection and was the PSAC West Freshman of the Year. The Fighting Scots won 20 or more games during all four years that Freeland played for the team, posting an 89-31 record over that time.
During the 2013-14 season, Freeland was part of a PSAC championship team and helped push the school to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the second time in program history.
In her senior year, Freeland was sixth in the conference in scoring at 16.3 points per game, ninth in rebounds with 7.9 per game and third with 55 blocks on the season. Freeland shot a team-best 51.1. percent from the floor and ranked fourth on the team with 45 assists.
Freeland cracked the 1,000-point career mark during her junior season and leaves sixth all-time in Edinboro scoring with 1,555 career points. She is also third all-time in career rebounds with 944 and has the fifth highest block total at 139.
