Hesston College women’s basketball coach Dan Harrison announces Jermani Thompson, a 5’5” shooting guard from East St. John High School, Reserve, La., as the latest addition to the Larks program.

A second-team all-district player, Thompson helped East St. John High to a district championship her senior year. She will study nursing at Hesston.

“Jermani is a player who can help us on both ends of the floor,” Harrison said. “She’s been a go-to scorer for her high school team and I’m confident she’ll fill that same role for us. We’re excited she is joining our program.”

Thompson is the daughter of Angela Montgomery and granddaughter of Marie Stevenson, both of Reserve. She attends Destiny Christian Center, Laplace, La.
