Maryland women’s basketball junior guard Sarah Myers is transferring out of the program, head coach Brenda Frese confirmed at the team’s awards banquet Tuesday night.
Despite being just a junior, Myers is about to complete her degree in kinesiology next month. The Cumming, Georgia, product will look to further her academic and athletic career closer to home, Frese said. Georgia and Georgia Tech are within 70 miles of her hometown, and former Maryland teammate and fellow Cumming native Jenna Staiti plays for the Bulldogs, but it’s unclear where Myers will end up.
Myers may not have had the largest impact on the court throughout her time in College Park, but she was often cited as a great teammate known for her exuberant attitude and strong work ethic. In 82 career appearances, she averaged 1.5 points in 8.9 minutes per game. In March, she was honored with a Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.
At the banquet, the Terrapins also announced their team awards for the season. Unsurprisingly, junior guard Kaila Charles took home the MVP award, while freshmen Taylor Mikesell and Shakira Austin were named Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, respectively.
