Palomar women’s basketball has another reason to celebrate after their best season in history.

Sophomore guards Lee Lee Tomlinson and Daijon Sumpter have accepted basketball scholarships to Presentation College and Bethel College, respectively.

Presentation College, located in Aberdeen, S.D., finished the 2014-15 season 8-17. Bethel College, a Christian school in Newton, Kan., finished 10-18, but had the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) Player of the Year in April, Harpe.

Tomlinson, who originally came from Hamilton High School in Los Angeles, finished her sophomore season averaging 2.9 points per game to go along with 2.1 assists per game.

Her biggest contributions, however, were on defense. She finished fourth on the team with 34 steals.

Sumpter, a product of Fallbrook High School, was primarily a bench player in her two years at Palomar. She finished her season averaging 1.5 points per game and had 10 steals.
