Stephanie Binder, a senior at Rye Country Day School, recently committed to play basketball for Johns Hopkins University in the fall. The Blue Jays are currently ranked 25th in the nation in the NCAA Division III polls.
Binder, a 5-foot-8 shooting guard, has emerged as one of the premier sharpshooters in the Northeast, according to Coaches Choice USA, a national scouting service. Over the summer, the senior played a key role in propelling her AAU team, Exodus Westchester, to an 8th place finish at the AAU National U16 Championships.
Along with her teammates, Binder hopes to lead the Wildcats to a third consecutive NYSAIS State championship this season.
