Sidney Quinn announced today that she has made a verbal commitment to the United States Naval Academy, where she will also play Division I basketball. The Verona resident is a rising junior at Gill St. Bernard’s School in Gladstone, New Jersey, where she has already put up 331 points in the first two years of her high school basketball career.

“Thank you to my family, my trainers and coaches who have helped me achieve this goal,” Quinn wrote on social media. “Thank you to Coach Taylor and the rest of the Navy staff for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I am so very grateful and inspired by all of my high school and AAU teammates, and all of the girls I’ve competed with and against over the last few years.” In April, Quinn traveled with her brother Kieran to Ireland to compete in the Four Nations Tournament between Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England.

Quinn, who also plays lacrosse at Gill St. Bernard’s, had been scouted by other college basketball programs, but had been deeply committed to pursuing the Navy program. She will have a five-year service commitment after her undergraduate years. Although several young men from Verona have been accepted to West Point and the Coast Guard Academy over the years, Quinn may be the first Verona woman to head to a service academy.
