“… One thing that attracted me to Alice Loyd was it felt like home. Coach Mills and the staff made me feel like part of the family right off. That’s what I want to be a part of, but most importantly being able for my family to come watch my games is important to me.”
“… I would also like to thank Coach Morrone, Jody Burgess, Carla Booth, David Asiedu and especially my Dad, without my dad I would have never found my love for basketball!! All these coaches has had a big impact to help me get to where I am. Coach Morrone has been my coach for the past four years, his constant motivation and encouragement pushed me to heights I never dreamed I’d reach. Thank you for inspiring me to be excellent in all that I have done. These coaches have all pushed me to become the player and person I am today. I want to Thank all of them for everything they have done for me.”

“… It is always great to see one of our players to achieve their goal to play at the next level. Kerigan is a great example of when dedication and commitment to improvement come together with talent, the shy is the limit. She will be a great addition to Coach Mills’ Lady Eagle’s and we can’t wait to watch the next chapter unfold for Kerigan Salmons. She is a great player, student and even better person, we know she will be successful in all her future endeavors.” Go Eagles

COLLEGE COACH’S COMMENTS
“… When we recruited Kerigan she checked a lot of the boxes that we were looking for. Good shooter, hard nose, gets to the free throw line and knocks them down and most importantly she is a winner. We recruited her hard and I’m sure glad she chose Alice Lloyd.”
