Ashle Thompson, Whitney Ivy and Neena Pacholke, three players on Freedom High’s girls basketball state semifinal team, will continue their careers in college, head coach Laurie Pacholke said.

Thompson, a 5-foot-10 forward, will play for Division II Florida Tech. Thompson averaged 3.0 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. Ivy, a senior guard who averaged 6.2 points per game, will play for Johnson & Wales University, a NAIA program, and Pacholke, the coach’s daughter who also averaged 3.0 points per game, will be a preferred walk-on at South Florida.

Four players total from the state semifinalist team will play at the next level, highlighted by Faith Woodard, who has signed with Division I Georgetown University.

Freedom lost to Gainesville Buchholz in the 7A state semis.
