Boys basketball: Wellington’s Gerry Milligan signs with Lindenwood University 

By Jodie Wagner

Wellington point guard Gerry Milligan signed with Lindenwood University in Belleview, Ill., on Monday, Wolverines coach Matt Colin announced.

Milligan, a 6-foot-1 senior, was second on the team in assists last season with an average of 4.2. He was named an Honorable Mention All-Conference player and also was selected to play in the Palm Beach We Got Game All-Star Basketball Game.

“Gerry is an exceptional point guard who was a leader on and off the court for the Wellington High School basketball team,” Colin said. “He helped lead us to our first district title in 12 years. He is going to have the opportunity to develop and get stronger, and he has the potential to play right away as a freshman.”

Lindenwood University competes in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics American Midwest Conference.
