Jordan Augustus from St. Mary's

 

Don’t bring up the fact that Jordan Augustus transferred to St. Mary’s from Mary Louis Academy in the fall when you speak to her. In fact, don’t bring it up to anyone at St. Mary’s. It’s irrelevant.

“I’m not a transfer, I’ve been here awhile now,” said the sophomore forward. And it’s evident on the court: Augustus is quite comfortable with her current family and has helped propel them to the NSCHAA championship game completely unscathed.  If St. Mary’s wins the title on Sunday, it’ll be the school’s first in girls’ hoops for almost two decades. And Augustus’ fingerprints are all over it, transfer and underclassman or not.

“She’s an awesome player and an awesome kid,” said St. Mary’s Head Coach Tom Flynn. “After practice, she’d ask me ‘Can we stay?’ And she’s only 15.”

That dedication transfers smoothly onto the court; Augustus averages about 12 points per game, pulls down double digits in rebounds regularly and gets shockingly close to averaging double digits in the shot-swatting department. An extremely strong player, she takes it to the hoop with vigor, enforces the paint and has stepped up in big games against tougher opponents like Brooklyn’s South Shore and league rival, St. Anthony’s, who St. Mary’s will face in the NSCHSAA championship.

“The thing I do best is taking it inside,” Augustus said. “But over the summer I want to work on my jump shot and my handle.”

Her summer stints with the NYC Heat AAU program should hone her guard skills and make her a serious match-up disaster for opponents next year.  Coach Flynn will have to take the good with the inexperience when it comes to Augustus’ age, but if her level of play this season and dedication to improvement are any indications, the future is bright and colleges will have a prospect on their hands.

“She’s got the work ethic and she’s a tremendous kid,” Coach Flynn said.
