“Danielle spencer is a definite 4-5 post player for us that we are going to be in dire need of after losing J’Lisia [Ogburn] and Jessica [Geiger] this year,” said head coach Rusty Cram. “She is very athletic, is quick and runs the floor well. She looks to have great potential in this conference and we are very excited about having her.”
Aishya Wofford, a 6’0” power forward, hails from Augusta, Georgia and attends Westside High School. Wofford averaged 16.9 points, 19 rebounds and five blocked shots in 2008. She has been named MVP and All Region during her career at Westside High School.

Wofford is Commander of her ROTC Navel Unit and is a strong student-athlete.
“Aishya Wofford is a very strong, physical swing player. She is completely opposite of Danielle. Whereas Danielle is a finesse player, Aishya is a power player that can also score from the outside. She has strong inside and outside games,” stated Cram.
“Both signees are extremely intelligent young ladies both on and off the court and are also very good students.
