MEDIA, Pa. -- Penn State Brandywine head women's basketball coach Larry Johnson welcomed four student-athletes who have enrolled for the fall semester and will join the Lions' team this winter on Wednesday.
The recruited student-athletes joining the women's basketball team include Jenna Carp, Erin Michael, Dairayonna Stewart-Harold and Kira Thorne.
That quartet will join a Brandywine team that has reached the PSUAC Tournament semifinals 14-straight seasons, the last 13 of which coming under Johnson's watch, and won four conference championships during that time. The Lions have won at least 18 games each of the last seven years.
Below are biographies on each of the Brandywine women's basketball team's four newcomers:
