CR's Slade to join Sonoma State Basketball

College of the Redwood’s James Slade will call Rohnert Park home next season. The Ferndale graduate is expected to join the Sonoma State basketball program in the fall. There’s a chance Slade will also play baseball for the Seawolves.


This past season, Slade helped lead the Corsairs to a second place finish in the Golden Valley Conference. He averaged 16 points and 7 rebounds per game. 


Slade will visit the North Coast next season when Sonoma plays at Humboldt State.
