Notable Area Signings

Hillhouse senior point guard Andreana Thomas signed a national letter of intent to play at Hofstra University.

The 5-foot-4 Thomas missed significant time last season with a leg injury, but came back to lead Hillhouse to its second straight Class L state championship. She averaged 14 points and 10 assists per game last season, and set a school mark with 21 assists in a game.

“Andreana is an explosive point guard who has the ability to push the tempo and change the pace of a game,” said Hofstra coach Krista Kilburn-Steveskey in a press release. “She is very skilled in what she does and she will fit well in our system.”

Also, Mercy senior Amber Bepko, a Guilford resident, will play at Hartford. Bepko, a 5-foot-9 guard, averaged 17 points and 9 rebounds for the Tigers, who reached the Class LL final last season.

Borelli to coach Hamden Hall

Megan Borelli has been named the head girls' basketball coach at Hamden Hall.
Borelli, 29, replaces Bruce Rich, who served as head coach for 10 seasons. She stepped down as Guilford's head coach last season after three years. 
The Indians went 26-38 under Borelli and reached both the Southern Connecticut Conference and Class L state tournaments the last two seasons. She enters a Hamden Hall program that went 22-5 last season and won the New England Prep School Class D title.
"I'm looking forward to it," Borelli said. "They've seemed to have a great tradition in girls' basketball the last few years and I'm looking forward to being a part of it."
