Waubonsee's Wadsworth chosen for Ring of Honor

Wadsworth honored by Women's Basketball Hall of Fame

The jersey of Waubonsee Community College’s women’s basketball player Julianna Wadsworth is now on display at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame’s “Ring of Honor” in Knoxville, Tenn. Wadsworth is one of over 100 players nationwide who was selected for the “Ring of Honor,” a tradition that has honored All-Americans at both the high school and collegiate levels since the Hall of Fame opened its doors in 1999.

Wadsworth, a two-time NJCAA All-American selection, is the first ever Waubonsee player to be chosen for this recognition. The Oswego East High School graduate finished her two-year junior college career as Waubonsee’s all-time leading scorer with 1,211 career points. She also set the Chiefs’ single-season scoring mark with 628 points this past season. Wadsworth finished this past season in the top-20 nationally among all NJCAA Division II players in scoring, steals and free throw percentage. The 5’9” shooting guard helped lead unranked Waubonsee to consecutive Region IV Division II District B titles and back-to-back top-12 finishes at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament. Wadsworth was also tabbed the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference Player of the Year after helping the Chiefs’ to an undefeated 14-0 league title. The sophomore will be continuing her collegiate career at NCAA Division II affiliate Missouri Southern State University.
