Aug. 12, 2013 - Rachelle Aupont, a 5-foot, 9-inch forward, is the newest player signed for the 2013-14 season by Eastern Florida State College head women's basketball coach Jim Grimes.
Aupont is projected to play strong forward for the Titans.
A 2012 graduate of Orlando, FL, Edgewater High, Aupont averaged 6.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in her senior season.
Aupont played at the varsity level for three seasons during which Edgewater recorded a 71-16 won-loss record including a 28-5 record and a Class 6A state championship in her final year.
"Rachelle comes from a great program at Edgewater and is a proven winner," Grimes said. "I am very excited to have her join our program."
