Naz Hillmon ’18 had to miss her Commencement, but it was for good reason! She was at a three-day tryout in Colorado Springs at the United States Olympic Training Center vying for a spot on the 12-person roster for the 2018 USA Basketball U18 National team. And we're thrilled to report she made it!
Hillman returned to Colorado Springs on July 20 for training camp before the team headed to the 2018 FIBA Americas U18 Championship from August 1-7. The top four teams at that championship earn a berth in next summer's 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup.
Hillman has set records at every turn throughout her career at Gilmour and this was the finishing touch.
She is the girls basketball program's all-time leading scorer and rebounder and has the most career starts and wins. She was named First Team
All-Ohio for DIII for the 2016-2017 season and First Team All-Ohio for DII for the 2017-2018 season.
Hillman heads to Michigan this fall, where she will play for the Wolverines.
