Walker Signs With UConn

Chaminade Julienne saw its first athlete of the school year sign a Letter of Intent as Samarie Walker inked a contract with the University of Connecticut on November 13. Signing through tears and a smile, the two-time All American, three-time District All Star and ESPN top-ten player said that the moment was “a dream come true.”

“I have dreamed of playing for UConn since fourth grade. I’ve admired their coaching staff, how hard everyone works, and their desire to win.” Walker’s collegiate goals include assisting the Huskies in winning four more championships and earning a degree in business management. Before all of that happens, Walker looks forward to spending her last season at CJ helping the Eagles on its trek to Columbus.  To young aspiring athletes, Walker advises, “work hard and follow your heart.”
