Raven women's basketball head coach Chad Folsom has announced the signing of his third McDonald's All-America nominee to his incoming freshman class.

This past week Hayden High School standout Jayde Reid (pictured front row center) signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Benedictine next season. 


Jayde is a 5’10 guard from Topeka who led the Hayden Wildcats to an 18-6 record and a trip to the 4A State Tournament.  She averaged over 17 points per game and earned first-team All-City, first-team All-Conference, and first-team All-State honors.

“We are very excited to have Jayde join our Lady Raven family," Coach Folsom said. "Jayde is a very smart player and knows how to score.  She is also a very strong student, good leader and great person who will excel at Benedictine College."

Jayde also excelled on the volleyball court at Hayden, where she was an all-city and all-ttate performer for her high school volleyball team. 

For the 2011-2012 season, Jayde is the third McDonald’s All-American nominee that has signed with the Benedictine, joining Jackie Ziesel and Chayla Rutledge.
