The Spartans of Southwestern Community College confirmed the addition of Jasmine Aviles, a 5-foot 10-inch small forward/power forward of Crawfordville, FL, to their 2017-18 women's basketball roster.

Aviles, a May 2017 graduate of Wakulla High School, was a 2015-16 and 2016-17 honorable mention all-conference selection and started varsity all four years of high school. Academically, she was a member of the Honors Court, National Honor Society, and graduated Summa Cum Laude.  She was ranked in the top 10 in her class.

Addae Houston, head coach for the Southwestern Spartans, who signed Aviles last week, said she is a competitive, hard-working, and coachable player who will increase the depth in his front court. 

"Jasmine is a hybrid-type of player who will give us versatility on offense with her ability to shoot from deep range," Houston stated. "However, due to her strength, she can still defend our opponents' inside players."

Aviles said she feels blessed by the opportunity to play for the Spartans and views it as a stepping stone in her life. 

She is the daughter of Rafael and Lydia Aviles of Crawfordville, FL.
