Ranger Women's Basketball Signs Kendahl Avery to National Letter of Intent
Denver, Colo.: The Regis University women's basketball team is about to get started with their 2009-10 season, but today head coach Linda Raunig announced the signing of Kendahl Avery for the 2010-11 season.
Avery is in her second season at Sheridan College (Wyo.), where she helped lead the Lady Generals to the NJCAA Region IX championship and a trip to the NJCAA National Tournament. She averaged 8.7 points and five rebounds per game in her freshman season and so far this year has contributed nine points and six rebounds per outing.
Raunig states, "Kendahl will be a good addition to our team, especially considering how young we will be next season. She is mature and will be a solidifying force for us next year."
A 2008 graduate of Laramie High School, Avery was a member of the South Team for the Wyoming Coaches Association All-Star Game. She also earned a spot on the Wyoming team in the annual Wyoming-Montana All-Star and Wyoming-South Dakota All-Star games. She helped lead her Laramie team to a third place finish at the 2006 Wyoming Class 4A State Tournament.
"She has good size and with her versatility, can play either down low or on the outside," comments Raunig. "She is a good rebounder and knows how to win, with her past success at Sheridan."
Regis went 14-14 last season and begin the season on Friday as they host the Regis University Catholic School Tournament. Regis will play Newman (Kan.) University on Friday evening at 6:00 p.m.
