DONALDSON, IN – Donshae (Shae) and Donshelle (Shelle) Daniels, seniors at Ben Davis High School, recently signed their National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Letters of Intent to play basketball for the Chargers at Ancilla College.

When asked why she chose Ancilla, Shelle replied, “Playing at Ancilla will give me a chance to gain more exposure of my basketball skills while staying close to home.”
Head Coach for Ancilla, Tom Robbins commented on Shelle’s signing, “Shelle has been one of the best players in Indianapolis over the last couple of years. Her skills will definitely make an impact in our conference.”
Shae, is a 5’10” forward for Ben Davis. She is a two year varsity award letter recipient and also received the Most Improved Award for her team.
“Ancilla is a great start for me at the college level,” commented Shae. “The school is smaller in size and close to home which I really like.”
“Schae has tremendous potential,” said Robbins. “She has natural athleticism and I believe her best basketball is ahead of her.”
Shelle and Schae are the daughters of Lanelle Daniels-Stringer and Kenneth Stringer. While attending Ancilla, Shelle plans to study mathematics and Shae plans to pursue her degree towards becoming a lawyer.
