Congratulations to Myriama Smith Traore 6’2 F from Whitewater on her commitment to NCAA D1 Marquette University from the Big East Conference. M was one of the prized forward recruits in the 2017 class in the country and committed to MU over ACC and Big Ten programs. M played for the Lakers for 4 years.
Myriama is simply a dominating force on the defense on end of the floor able to guard 3-5 positions as good as anyone you will find. She is also the most dominate rebounder I have ever seen. She can take a game over without scoring a point which makes her a very special player. What is really scary is she has the ability to post up, drive to the rack, or knock down the 3 with the best of them, but she much prefers to distribute the ball and get teammates open. Tremendous get for Marquette and look forward to watching M try to lead her team to another state championship this season.
Congratulations to Abby Guidinger 5’10 2017 SG from Kettle Moraine on committing to NCAA D2 Minnesota Crookston from the Northern Sun Conference. Abby is our 3rd player to commit to a school in the Northern Sun this year! She has played for the Wisconsin Lakers the past 4 seasons.
Abby is a crafty lefty that can get to the rack or knock down a 3 from dead. She had a big summer having big game after big game. Multiple games she hit over four 3’s a game. Not only can she hit the 3 consistently, but she can hit it from a couple feet behind the line as well. This skill stretches the defense and frees up her teammates to score easier. Crookston is getting another good Laker that will be a great addition to their program joining; Alison Hughes, Amber Shoenicke, Kelsey Stinson, and Lindsey Weber who are currently on the Golden Eagles roster.
Congratulations to Calli Delsman 5’10 2017 G from Waukesha West on committing to NCAA D2 Minot State University in the Northern Sun Conference. Calli has played for the Lakers for the past 3 seasons, and will be joining Kari Clements who is currently a Sophomore at Minot.
Calli has one of the better off hand drives you will see, and a spin move that is deadly. Her ability to be able to guard multiple positions, as well as her ability to score inside/outside makes her a tough match-up for anyone. She is one of those players that isn’t flashy but has a knack for making big plays/shots that alter the outcomes of games. Her long arms and rebounding ability will be missed.
