LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming Cowgirl head basketball coach Joe Legerski today announced one addition to this year's recruiting class with the signing of Rebecca Campigli to attend the University of Wyoming beginning in the fall of 2009.
"Rebecca Campigli is the first true point guard that we've had at Wyoming," said Legerski. "She likes to distribute the basketball and push the ball in transition, while being an outside shooting threat. She completes this recruiting class as she joins Chaundra Sewell and Sara Wilson as future Cowgirls."
Here is the signee:
Rebecca Campigli, 5-10, Guard, Melbourne, Australia (Wesley College):
A two-time member of the U20 Victorian Team, that won an Australian National Gold and Silver medal, and the U18 and U16 Victorian Metropolitan Team. For two years, she was a development player for the Dandenong Rangers with the WNBL and a member of the Australian Schoolgirls Team. During her time at Wesley College, she was selected Girls First Team (2006-08) and a two-time captain, while being named MVP for the McDonalds Cup Tournament (2007) and the Wesley Team (2007-08). Campigli was also a juniors player with the Nunawading Spectres and helped them to four gold medals and one bronze medal at the National Junior Classic. She has been coached by Lori Chizik. Rebecca is the daughter of Peter and Vicki Campigli. She has two siblings, Sarah and Todd.
Campigli is the third student-athlete to sign a letter of intent with the Cowgirls as they inked two during the early signing period. The other signees include Chaundra Sewell (6-1, Forward, Broomfield, Colo.) and Sara Wilson (5-9, Guard, Grant, Neb.).
