Elmira's Guinta Signs With Red Barons Basketball

Elmira High School standout Jerick Guinta has signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent to attend Corning Community College and play basketball for the Red Barons this fall.  Guinta, a 6'4 guard, averaged a double-double this season for the Express knocking down 13 points a game and grabbing 10 boards.  Elmira Coach Ryan Johnson was pleased that Jerick chose CCC; "Jerick made a very mature and wise decision when he had multiple offers on the table. He made a choice that was most academically, financially and athletically responsible for him.  He is a great kid, hard-worker and comes from a very supportive family.  He will fit in well at Corning and I'm happy I will still be able to see him play at the next level."

Corning Coach Isaac Bushey had this to add about Guinta's commitment; "He is a great addition to our program and team as he is a perfect fit on and off the court.  Jerick has the unique ability to play multiple positions at 6'4 while providing floor spacing and he is a solid rebounder.  As a person, he is a "team-first" guy and brings a competitive edge to practice day in and day out.  We are very excited to have him as part of the program."
