PSA lands 1st female
PUTNAM — Putnam Science Academy landed its first female basketball commitment last week.
Tan’eja Drayton, a 5-foot-2, 120-pound guard, out of Boston, officially signed to Putnam Science Academy and its new women’s basketball program.
Drayton selected the Mustangs over Brewster Academy, Cheshire Academy and the Tilton School.
Drayton played at New Mission High School in Massachusetts. She was a four-year varsity starter and a four-time Boston City All Star. She led her team this past winter to the Boston City Championship. She was named Boston City Championship MVP, and Drayton scored over 1,000 points in her career at New Mission.
“Tan’eja is a sneaky athletic guard that can create space to get her shot off. She finishes through contact and can knock down long-distance threes,” said Putnam Athletic Director Tom Espinosa. “She has long arms for her size that allows her to accumulate steals in the passing lanes.”
Athletic Director Tom Espinosa and Putnam Science Academy will be announcing the first ever head coach to the women’s program within the next week or two.
