Women's Basketball's Aupont to Participate in Showcase Event
June 3, 2014 - Eastern Florida State College women's basketball player Rachelle "Rocky" Aupont will participate in the "The Juco Journal" Florida Invitational showcase at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida on July 6.
The event draws NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III and NAIA coaches from around the country.
Aupont, a 5-foot, 9-inch forward from Orlando, Florida and Edgewater High, was a second-team Florida College System Activities Association Southern Conference selection as a freshman last season. She finished as Eastern Florida's leading rebounder and second-leading scorer.
"This is great exposure for Rocky," said Eastern Florida head coach Jim Grimes. "Not only does she get to showcase her skills in front of a plethora of coaches but she also gets to measure herself against many players she will be competing against in the 2014-2015 season.
"Rocky worked very hard last season to get into playing shape and by the end of the year had blossomed into a prolific scorer and rebounder and a team leader. She deserves the opportunity."
