St. Mary's adds three transfers
St. Mary’s just got a lot better. Three players from Mary Louis have transferred to St. Mary’s, including sophomore point guard Mei-Lyn Bautista, who is considered one of the top sophomore in the country. Sophomores Jordan Augustus and McKayla Hernandez will also make the move to St. Mary’s.
St. Mary’s had nine sophomores last season and lost just one senior. Alyssa James, a 6-2 senior, returns along with Jasmine Bryant, who missed last season with a torn ACL. She was one of the Gaels’ best players as a freshman.
