Holy Names high school product Shae-Lyn Murphy will have to give up nothing when she heads to St. Clair College this fall.
The 18-year-old Murphy is a standout on the basketball court and an equally talented softball player and the Saints have provided her an opportunity to do both.

“I was, overall, going to pick one sport, but once I got the offer I couldn’t beat it anywhere else,” Murphy said. “It was important to me, as an individual, to proceed in both because I love them both.”
A 5-foot-2 point guard, Murphy helped Holy Names to the 2017 WECSSAA title and is a four-time WECSSAA first-team all-star. She also played club ball with the Windsor Valiants and Tecumseh Saints.
“Shae is a natural athlete with a high IQ for the game and plays a true point guard with the ability to orchestrate on the floor,” Saints women’s head basketball coach Andy Kiss said in a release. “She is a two-way player who is not only a difference maker on offence, but also a stout defender. Can’t wait to add her to our basketball family this season and beyond.”
