Four Napoleon girls basketball alumnae are playing collegiate basketball this season.

Among those playing at the next level are sophomores Shae Pedroza and Cait Good and freshmen Taylor Strock and Caely Ressler.

Shae Pedroza • Lourdes

Pedroza started all 19 games for Lourdes University last season as a freshman, while averaging nearly nine points per game.

This season, Pedroza is pumping in 13.3 ppg, which includes a pair of 20-point games and a 15-point performance last Wednesday against No. 9-ranked Indiana Tech.

Pedroza is impacting the 3-5 Gray Wolves in a multitude of areas making 17 of her 18 free throws, shooting 39% from 3-point range and leading the team with 21 assists.

Cait Good • Defiance

Good played in 10 games at Defiance College last season, including six starts, while scoring nearly four points per game with 2.8 rebounds per game.

She has played in two of the Lady Jackets’ (3-1) four games this season, and scored her only two points of the season on a pair of free throws against Ohio Wesleyan on Nov. 17.

Good played a season-high 11 minutes off the bench Saturday, grabbing four rebounds in a 65-53 win over St. Mary’s College

Taylor Strock • Cedarville

Strock has played in two of Cedarville’s first four games this season, scoring eight points in 15 minutes of court time.

The freshman has made all four of her 2-point attempts for the season, has grabbed five rebounds and dished a pair of assists — which all came in a season-opening 88-37 win over Lake Superior State.

Strock played one minute for the Yellow Jackets (3-1) in Saturday’s win over Indianapolis, but did not record a statistic.

Caely Ressler • Baldwin Wallace

Ressler has played in all three games for No. 21-ranked Baldwin Wallace this season as a freshman, scoring an efficient 14 points with eight rebounds in 46 minutes of playing time.

She has made 56% of her nine field goal attempts, which includes a pair of 3-point buckets on four attempts.

The Yellow Jackets played in the Hope Tournament at Division III’s No. 1-ranked Hope College over the weekend and split the two games to move to 2-1 on the season.

Ressler scored five points and grabbed four rebounds in the first game, before scoring two points with a pair of assists and a blocked shot against Hope.
