Joy Kendrick of Sherwood Christian set to continue her basketball career

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) – Sherwood Christian celebrated one of their own on Wednesday morning.

Joy Kendrick signed a full five-year scholarship with the University of the Cumberlands to further her basketball career. The leading point guard reached a thousand career points last season…and finished the year with over 11 cents.

Over the course of three seasons, she won honors from all regions and states.

Kendrick said she looks forward to continuing to play the sport she loves at the next level.

To be part of this special moment, his future head coach Rick Reeves. Coach Reeves said the only thing he has yet to accomplish is securing a national championship, a goal he hopes to achieve with Kendrick on the team.

“I’m honored that he wants me to be a part of this. If that’s the goal he wants, then to be part of hoping to win one for him would be a pleasure. It’s just a fun to be asked to play for a coach and continue my basketball career, it’s just the sport I love. Coaches, they’re just super relational and I love that. And they’re everything I’m going for. I prayed,” Kendrick said.

Kendrick has been in the last four twice in the last three seasons as she looks to help her team get back to the semi-finals with the Eagles.

She will join the Patriots in the fall.
