Former Berean Christian shooting guard Mary-Madison Sims made the women’s basketball team at the University of South Florida as a walk-on.

“She was the only walk-on who made it — they’re keeping 13 scholarships and one walk-on,” Berean Christian girls basketball coach Shawn Och said.

“It’s huge for us. We have never had a Division I player in girls basketball. It’s a great accomplishment for her.

“Mary-Madison was an intense competitor and valuable teammate with a strong work ethic. Her dedication and desire for the game of basketball have made this opportunity possible.”

Sims helped lead Berean (21-10) to the 12-1A regional semifinals last season. It was the best finish in program history.
