All-state guard Amanda Berchtold verbally committed to Gannon on Wednesday. The Mercyhurst Prep senior is a superb ball-handler and a stalwart on defense. She earned a spot on the all-district team as a junior and has been named to the all-region team the past two years.
Berchtold is the fourth member of the Erie Saints AAU organization to commit to a college this summer. Villa Maria’s Lisa Mifsud and Adrienne Kloecker committed to Division I Holy Cross and Division II Mercyhurst earlier this summer. Greenville standout Brooklyn Taylor was the third member of the Erie Saints to commit after choosing St. Francis.
