Jayla Scaife: "These past 4 years have been amazing! What I've learned in this journey is immeasurable. I love what I was able to be a part of. I'll forever be grateful for being a Flyer and putting on that jersey. Thank you for allowing me to play such an amazing place!"
Jordan Wilmoth: "This past Sunday was a dream come true. Playing on our home court, in front of family, friends and the best fans in the world on the biggest stage. … Championship Sunday. I never would have thought that day would be the last time I would put on a Dayton jersey. These past four years have been more than I ever could imagine."
Wilmoth then listed Dayton’s accomplishments during her career: three A-10 regular-season championships, two A-10 tournament titles and three trips to the NCAA tournament, the last one cancelled because of this decision.
Wilmoth wrote she gained “not just friends but sisters that I have laughed, cried and rejoiced with through thick and thin,” and she grew as a player and as a woman.
“From the bottom of my heart,” Wilmoth wrote. “Thank you to everyone who has made my collegiate career and senior year a special one. I am proud to say that I am going out a winner … a champion.”
