U SPORTS WBB: Ryerson add NCAA Talent in Kaillie Hall

Toronto,ON- The Ryerson Rams announced Wednesday the addition of Guard Kaillie Hall to the women’s basketball team. 

Hall is transferring from NCAA Division 1 school Bowling Green State University where she played her freshman year averaging 2.8 points-per-game and had 11 steals in 22 games played. She is the school’s fourth recruit this off-season, joining Haley Fedick, Laneigh Shirley and Jayme Foreman.

“We are very excited to add Kaillie to the Ramily!” said Rams head coach, Carly Clarke to Ryerson Athletics. “Kaillie, having been a key contributor on very successful teams throughout her club, provincial team, and high school career, brings her winning pedigree to our program.”

Before going down south, The Stoney Creek, Ontario native played for local high school juggernaut Lincon Prep where she won two Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association  Championships, was twice named to the OSBA All-Academic Team and was the recipient of the Hazel Miner Sportsmanship Award given out by Ontario basketball.

 Hall has represented Canada as apart of the U-16 Canadian women’s basketball team in the 2017 FIBA Americas Tournament, where the team won silver. 

She has also played for the U-15 and U-17 Ontario teams and was named a First-team all-star of the National Championships as she helped lead her U-17 Ontario team to a National Championship. She captained both U17 Team Ontario and Lincoln Prep. 

The 5’10 guard was also invited to the BioSteel All Canadian Basketball Games, an event that features the top 24 high school male and female basketball players that are Canadian and/or playing in Canada. 

The latest addition to the team comes as a way to fill the void left by the team’s Graduating star point guard Hayley Robertson, who helped lead the rams to an OUA silver medal and an appearance at the National Championship in the 2019-2020 season. 

After coming within a game last year, Rams will look for another shot at the next Critelli Cup with the help of Kaillie Hall.
