UMass offers Archies SF Alana Gilmer
By Brendan Hall
Archbishop Williams Class of 2015 forward Alana Gilmer received a scholarship offer on Monday from UMass, per her head coach with Bay State Magic AAU club, Megan Methven.
The 6-foot small forward is an Easton resident who contributed major minutes last season to a Bishops squad that made their sixth straight appearance in the MIAA Division 3 South finals. She averaged 10 points and seven rebounds on the season for Archies.
Gilmer's offer from the Minutewomen is just the latest instance of the growing line of suitors for the Bishops' heralded 2015 class. Last month, Ohio State offered Archies' 6-foot-3 forward Jaylen Williams.
