BANGOR, Maine — The Husson University women’s basketball program has boosted its roster for next season with the addition of two eastern Maine standouts.
Logan Huckins will transfer into the program from the University of New England and Megan Peach will join the program after a strong career at Dexter Regional High School.
Huckins was a three-year varsity player at Washington Academy in East Machias and played her senior season at Calais High School. She averaged 17 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds as a senior and was named to the Maine McDonald’s Senior All-Star Team.
“Logan will study pharmacy at Husson University. She is a tough, athletic point guard who will be looking to fill minutes after the Eagles graduated three starting guards this year,” said Eagles head coach Kissy Walker.
Peach, a 6-foot center, scored 1,000 points at Dexter where she averaged 16 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocked shots last season while leading the Tigers to the Class C regional title.
Peach, a three time all-conference selection, was named the Bangor Daily News Class C North Tournament MVP, played in the McDonald’s all-star game, and was a Miss Maine Basketball semifinalist.
“Megan is a basketball gym rat, she loves the game, she has good size and we will be looking for her to contribute offensively and on the boards,” Walker said.
Huckins and Peach join Emma Alley of Stearns in Millinocket and Abby Simpson of Foxcroft Academy in this year’s recruiting class.
