Women's Basketball Signs Idaho Player of the Year
April 17, 2001
PULLMAN, Wash. - Jami Clevenger's post high school basketball career as a Cougar will continue, just in a different setting.
Clevenger, a 6-foot-0 forward from Caldwell High School in Caldwell, Idaho, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Washington State, head coach Jenny Przekwas announced Tuesday.
The Idaho Statesman Division II Player of the Year, Clevenger averaged 12 points and seven rebounds a game leading the Caldwell Cougars to the Idaho A1 Division II State championship last season.
'With a State championship under her belt, Jami brings to her `new' Cougar team a competitive winning attitude,' said Przekwas. 'She'll start at the small forward position and we hope to work her into the three-guard spot within her first two years.'
'I am really excited for Jami and happy I will get the chance to see her play,' said Caldwell coach Andy Jones. 'This is what I hoped for her all along. I am very proud of her.'
Clevenger joins Francine McCurtain (Winslow, Ariz.) and Jessica Perry (Phoenix, Ariz.) as members of the WSU class of signees that Przekwas has brought to the Palouse this academic year.
