Woodbury senior Renard Suggs posted on Twitter he is signing with the University of Wyoming of Gillette to play basketball. Gillette, a Division 1 junior college, is the school his older brother Rickey played for this past year. Suggs, a shooting guard, averaged a team-best 19.1 points per game this winter for Woodbury. Woodbury head baseball coach Kevin McDermott returned to the team last week from a two-week suspension. Sources said McDermott was disciplined after being reported for using foul language toward a player.

Against PACT, sophomore Theresa Baranick led the Eagles with 6 RBI and senior Amanda Pastirik followed close behind with 5 RBI of her own, including a 3-run homerun in the fifth inning.

Starting a program from scratch, setting the traditions, initiating the work ethic, getting a youth program going, dedicating the enormous amount of time to get it all off the ground, Horning said. "All of those things interested me," Horning said.
