Former Christian Central Academy and Cheektowaga High School standout Kenetria Redfern signed a letter of intent Saturday to play Division I basketball at Maryland-Eastern Shore.
Redfern will become the first female basketball player from Niagara County Community College to play at the Division I level.
She was an integral part of the Thunderwolves’ 31-2 season that ended with the team’s first NJCAA National Tournament appearance in program history and its first Region III Division II championship.
Redfern was named the Region III Player of the Year in March as she averaged 22.4 points and 9.4 rebounds per game in two seasons (one redshirt) at NCCC. She owns the single-season scoring record with 734 points.
She was also named to the Division II All-Region First Team with teammate Shilah Parker.
At Cheektowaga, Redfern broke the 1,000-point mark during her third varsity season after she transferred from CCA.
She set a school record with 19 points in one quarter against Depew in 2016 as part of a 46-point, 22-steal performance.
Redfern was recognized on the All-WNY Girls Basketball third team and was an honorable mention on the All-State team in 2016.
