COACH HELMER: "Shawntanay has shown flashes of brilliance during her high school years while being unable to sustain high level performances over the long term. Training with our fast improving junior Aireonna Bailey plus fellow incomer, La Toya Williams, will give her all the help she needs to become the consistent performer we know she can be."
