Sports in brief: Redmon, Walter choose Gonzaga

 

Women’s basketball: Mead High School senior Jazmine Redmon, a three-sport All-Greater Spokane League athlete, will limit her focus to one sport in the future – basketball at Gonzaga.

Redmon, along with rival and summer-team teammate Danielle Walter of Pasco, committed to the Bulldogs recently, although they can’t sign their letters of intent until November.

“My choices were Gonzaga and New Mexico State, and Gonzaga was just closer to home,” Redmon said. “On my official visit I just got to know the girls real well and decided that’s where I wanted to go.”

The 5-foot-9 point guard is a two-time All-GSL first-team selection. She averaged 16.1 points last year and has 1,034 for her career as a three-year starter for the Panthers. She also earned all-league recognition in soccer and competes in track and field.

“Basketball was always my choice,” she said. “I’ve watched a couple of (GU’s) basketball games. I went to camp there and I always liked Kelly (Graves, the coach).”

Walter, a 5-11 point guard, averaged 10.8 points for Pasco during an undefeated regular season and bumped that to 16.8 during the postseason, which included earning MVP in the Eastern 4A regional tourney.

“The way (Graves) made it sound like, I’ll probably play some off-guard, too – one, two or three,” Walter said.

She chose Gonzaga over Villanova.
