BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland head women’s basketball coach Joe Logan announced that five women have formally made their commitments to play in the green and grey uniform for the 2014-15 season.
Joining the program will be Bri Betz-White (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Trinity), CaLee Gelbaugh (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin), Karley Kolberg (Rockton, Ill./Hononegah), Madelene McDonald (Coopersburg, Pa./Southern Lehigh) and Carly Monzo (Flourtown, Pa./Mount Saint Joseph Academy).
Betz-White, Gelbaugh, McDonald and Monzo join current Greyhounds Lisa Mirarchi and Steph Smith who also played high school basketball in the Keystone State. Kolberg makes the longest trip of any of the five incoming student-athletes, coming to Baltimore from Rockton, Ill., located two hours northwest of Chicago.
Bri Betz-White was a Patriot News Big 15 first team honoree for Trinity High School, alma mater of Loyola assistant coach Jill Glessner. In her sophomore season she was named to the Mid-Penn Conference Commonwealth Division I All-Star team. A year later, Betz-White was honored to the All-Sentinel Girls Basketball first team and Mid-Penn Conference Keystone Division all-star first team. She also spent time playing AAU ball for the South Central Select.
CaLee Gelbaugh was a member of the 1,000-point club at Central Dauphin East. She was a two-time Mid-PennConference first team all-star, as well as Patriot News Big 15 first team honoree. As a junior, Gelbaugh was named first team All-District and second team All-State.
Karley Kolberg from Rockton, Ill., helped the Hononegah Indians to the 2010-11 and 2011-12 regional championships. The following year, she led the team to a conference championship, and was named to the NIC-10 All-Conference team as the most valuable player. Kolberg was also a member of the Midwest Elite, leading the AAU team to the 2013 state championship title.
Madelene McDonald comes to Loyola from Coopersburg, Pa., where she led Southern Lehigh to three Colonial League championships, as well as the District 11 championship game in 2013. That same year she was named to the All-Colonial League first team, as well as the Morning Call All-Area first team. McDonald was honored as MVP of the Phoenixville Tip-Off Tournament and Southern Lehigh Winter Tournament in her junior season. She helped the Spartans to three PIAA state tournament appearances in her time in the blue and white uniform. McDonald and future Greyhound Carly Monzo both played for Bill McDonough and the Philadelphia Lady Runnin’ Rebels.
Monzo, a three-year starter at Mount Saint Joseph’s, led her team to three consecutive state tournament appearances. During her time at the academy the Mount garnered two Catholic Academy League championship titles. In 2010-11, Monzo and her team won the district championships, participating at the district tournament the next two years.
