Savannah Salisbury, senior at Riverton High School signed a letter of intent to play women’s basketball for Central Wyoming College on Thursday, May 7.
Salisbury has attended camps led by Serol Stauffenberg, CWC’s head coach and she had the opportunity to work out with the team last fall.
“I talked to other coaches but I have friends and family support here,” Salisbury said. Salisbury said she could have played soccer at Sheridan but decided that indoor sports are better.
Salisbury will play three-point shooting guard. CWC’s women’s team will only have one returning player in the fall.
“It’s like having a new team,” Coach Stauffenberg said. “Our one returning player is Heather Townsend from Douglas; eleven freshmen will be interesting. I’ve watched Savannah play which is a luxury to see local players. She should be able to grow and be a strong player. She is a great student and great athlete and you can’t go wrong with a student like that. I’m excited for her to be here.”
