DOWAGIAC — First-year Southwestern Michigan College Women’s Basketball Coach Jay Jenkins has added another player to his 2024-25 recruiting class.

Bella Cullifer, of Constantine High School, has signed her National Junior College Athletic Association letter of intent to play for the Roadrunners.

“Bella is a strong student and athlete, who moves well with a high motor,” said Constantine Coach Derrick Outlaw said. “She rebounds and runs the floor well, and always plays solid defense. She is coming into her own as a leader, her style is by example. She has tremendous upside as a leader on and off of the court.”

Jenkins added, “Bella will be a great asset to our program. She has the abilities to be a dominant rebounder and she is a hard worker in the classroom.”

Cullifer joins Maggie Weller, of Dowagiac, and Olivia Robinson, of Roscoe, Illinois, in SMC’s recruiting class.

Southwestern Michigan is currently 13-1 overall, including win margins of 51, 52, 62 and 75 points. The Roadrunners have already set numerous school records this season, including single game scoring (111), team two-point FG made in a game (43), team free throws made in a game (21), fewest points allowed in a game (18), team assists in a game (31), team rebounds in a game (67) and team steals in a game (25).
