University of Maine junior Sera Hodgson of Rindge, a 6-foot guard on the Black Bears’ women’s basketball team, came back to her home state last week for the team’s Border Battle with the University of New Hampshire.
Hodgson finished the game with two points, three rebounds and a steal as UMaine knocked off UNH, 78-52, Jan. 11 to improve to 10-7 on the season.
“Sera is a versatile guard who can do a variety of things,” Maine head coach Amy Vachon said of her junior guard. “She is very vocal and can play a number of positions. Her versatility fits in perfectly with what we do here. Coming from a basketball family, Sera knows what D-1 life is like and is ready to excel.”
Hodgson is the second-youngest of Rindge’s seven Hodgson siblings. Her older sister Eva was captain on the University of North Carolina women’s basketball team last year, and younger brother Manny is senior captain of the undefeated Conant boys’ basketball team.
She is averaging 4.1 points and 1.5 rebounds per game this season while shooting over 43% from three-point distance, including a season-high 12 points on four threes against Fordham in December.
The Bears’ next game is Thursday, Jan. 18, against University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
