Two Rock Valley College women's basketball players will stay in Rockford to continue their academic and athletic pursuits after signing with Rockford College.
Former Hononegah standout Erin Ryczek and Sherrell Woods have both joined the Regents for the upcoming season. Ryczek was a two-year starter for RVC who was named an honorable mention NJCAA all-American last season after helping lead the Golden Eagles to the first ever national title for RVC women's basketball. She finished her career at RVC in spectacular fashion by scoring 24 points in the national championship game against Roxbury Community College. She was also named second team all-conference, all-region, and was named to the NJCAA all-tournament team. Ryczek led the Golden Eagles in scoring last season at 15.4 points per game and in three-point shots made with 66.
Woods came off the bench and played in all 34 games for RVC last season, averaging 5.9 points per game while shooting 41% from the field.
