Women's Basketball Signs Two To National Letters of Intent

April 18, 2008


GREELEY, Colo. - University of Northern Colorado women's basketball head coach Jaime White announced the signing of two student-athletes to National Letter of Intents on Friday morning. Both Cassie Lambrecht and Victoria Timm will enroll in the fall of 2008.


Followers of the Bears should be familiar with the Lambrecht name as her sister Kendra played for the women's basketball team for three seasons, missing her last year due to injury but she was still involved with the day-to-day operations of the team this past year.


Cassie Lambrecht, 5-7, PG, Colorado Springs, Colo. (Golden HS)

Lambrecht is a four-time all-state selection for the Golden Demons earning first-team honors as a junior and senior. She also earned 4A state player of the year honors her final two seasons and was the 5A player of the year her sophomore stint. In 2006-07 as a junior Lambrecht led the state with 23.6 points per game and averaged 20.6 her senior year. She and the rest of the club went undefeated three straight years in Jefferson County Conference play.


"Cassie is one of the most decorated athletes we will sign this year," said White. "She is quick and smart at the point-guard position and we look forward to having her on the team."


Victoria Timm, 5-9, G, Haxtun, Colo. (Holyoke HS)

Timm is a three-time all-state selection for the Holyoke Dragons, as well as a three-time all-conference pick.  This past season, Timm was named to the Best of the Best in Colorado team and was the winner of the Wendy's Heisman award. She averaged over 17 points and eight rebounds her last two seasons. The Dragons were three-time District Champions and finished in the top four at the 2A state tournament all four seasons, including the state runners-up in 2006 as a sophomore.


"Victoria is a hidden talent in the state of Colorado," White stated. "She is not only a great player, but is great in the classroom as well and she will be an offensive threat immediately for the Bears."


Lambrecht and Timm join Kaisha Brown, Courtney Kranz and Lauren Oosdyke who were signed by the Bears during the early period.
