Falcon standout commits to Siena basketball

ALBANY, N.Y. (July 2, 2019) -- Albany High School upcoming senior Ahniysha “Baby” Jackson, who averaged 18.2 points a game last winter, made a verbal commitment to play basketball at NCAA Division 1 Siena College for the 2020-2021 season.

 

Jackson is a shooting guard for the Lady Falcons and under her court prowess during the 2018-19 season, the team rose as high as No. 9 in the state rankings. Jackson also helped the team to a 19-3 record and co-championship in the Suburban Council Grey Division.

 

“We owe much of our recent success to Ahniysha. I’m incredibly proud of this accomplishment and now she can finish her Falcon career without the distraction of the recruiting process,” said coach Decky Lawson, who has coached Jackson since she was a third-grader.

 

Jackson started on the varsity team as an eighth-grader and this season she drained more than 41 3-pointers last season. She averaged four rebounds, three steals and three assists a game.

     

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves approximately 9,300 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
