Lady Barons secure combo guard out of Tallahassee


MOUNT VERNON—Sharonta Williams, of Tallahassee, recently signed a letter of intent to play basketball on scholarship at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, said DeCole Shoemate, head women’s basketball coach.


Williams, a 5-foot-5 guard, averaged a team-high 18.1 points per game during the 2008-09 season at Leon High School. Williams started playing basketball at age 8 and played for AAU's 17-and-under team when she was only 15. At Leon, she was a four-time letter-winner and earned All-Big Bend honors from 2006 to 2009. Florida Hoops magazine ranked her among the best in the 2009 class.           


Williams has also excelled in flag football, being named All-Big Bend Flag Football Player of the Year, and track during her career at Leon. She was a key figure on Leon's 2008 state champion flag football team. In track, she placed in the top eight in the nation in the long jump six times and placed in the top eight in the nation in the 4 x 100 relay. 


“I am very excited about the addition of Sharonta to our program,” says Shoemate, “With her aggressiveness and ability to score at will she will be a much needed threat from the guard position.”


The Lady Barons begin their 2009-2010 season in November. More information about the Lady Barons can be found on the web at
