Graduating senior Garrett Williamson, who helped lead the Aces to a sixth state championship last March and 2nd consecutive state finals berth, will announce his post-high school plans at a press conference on Monday, June 12 at 3 PM in the Lower Merion High School gymnasium.
Williamson, the first player in Aces history to twice be named First Team All-State by the Associated Press, finishes his career as the school's 2nd all-time leading scorer, with 1349 points. He is a two-time All-Central League and All-Main Line first team honoree and was named to the Philadelphia Inquirer's All Southeastern PA second team in 2006. A team captain, honor roll student and Homecoming King, Williamson bestows a legacy of leadership, service and success at his high school alma mater.
Williamson will be joined by his family, Lower Merion coaches and teammates at Monday's event.
