Our Lady of Lourdes High School senior Ava Learn has signed a National Letter of Intent to play college basketball at Purdue University in Indiana.
The Hyde Park resident started her basketball career in the St. Martin de Porres CYO program and has played the past four years for the Philadelphia Belles, one of the nation’s top AAU programs, and the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League team.
At Lourdes, Learn has been a member of the varsity team since her freshman year and has scored over 1,000 career points. She’s also a member of the school’s National Honor Society.
At Purdue, she plans to study elementary education.
“The school itself is amazing, and I was looking for a team where at the end of the day they were my family and would have my back no matter what,” she said of Purdue in a release from Lourdes.
