MACON, Ga., April 10, 2018 – Tattnall Square Academy senior I’Uana Slaughter signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Southern Crescent Technical College today.
Slaughter has been an integral part of the Tattnall basketball program since her ninth grade year. Playing guard for the Trojans, she averaged 11.2 points per game and made 44 three-pointers. This year, I’Uana had a season high of 26 points during a region game against First Presbyterian Day School.
As he spoke at the signing, Coach Todd Whetsel noted that Slaughter has been a part of great teams over the past four years at TSA. These teams have won 83 games and have an average of 20 wins a season. All four teams were a part of the “sweet 16,” won a state playoff game, played for three region championships, and won a region championship game.
“I’Uana was a key contributor to all of these teams. She had the ability to not only score points herself, but also help other teammates score as well,” Coach Whetsel stated.
After signing, Slaughter thanked her family, teachers, and coaches who played critical roles throughout her athletic career. Slaughter stated, “I want to thank God and my family for always being there for me. I also want to thank my teammates for always being behind me for every game, and I want to thank my teachers for pushing me to be the best I can be. Go Tigers!”
“I’Uana is a talented basketball player. I look forward to seeing her continue to grow as a student and as a basketball player at Southern Crescent. Once a Trojan, always a Trojan! We will always be here for her,” concluded Whetsel.
