LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming Women's head coach Josey Stender has announced the signing of Dana Zamprelli to a National Letter of Intent to hit the links for the Cowgirls in the upcoming 2009-10 season.
Zamprelli is the younger sister of current Cowgirl, Jenna Zamprelli who is currently a sophomore on the squad. She comes to Wyoming from Castle Rock, Colo., and Douglas County High School where she is a four-sport athlete. Zamprelli lettered twice in volleyball, basketball, once in swimming and all-four years in golf.
"We can't be more excited about getting Dana to come and play here next season, she has the whole package," said Stender. "Dana has quite the resume that follows her to UW along with holding many of the records in the weight room. She is the type of player that has her best golf ahead of her."
During her golf career she has led her team to the League Championships twice, in 2006 and `07 as well as the Regional Championship in `07. The same year they were the state runner-up for the 5A division. Zamprelli has been selected to the first team All-Conference team once while being named to the second team in `06 and `07. This past season she was also named to the Colorado Junior Golf Association Academic All-Star team.
"Dana will add more depth to our roster and give us another option when it comes to players next season," said Stender. "We try to add quality student-athletes each year and it has shown with our recent success. Dana will fit in perfectly here as she is very coachable and extremely team oriented."
The Cowgirls will resume action February 15, 2009 at the SDSU Lady Aztec Spring Classic in Chula Vista, Calif.
