Topeka, Kan. - Washburn Lady Blues head basketball coach Ron McHenry has announced first first signing of the 2008-09 recruiting class with the addition of Cassie Lombardino, a 6-3 forward from Basehor-Linwood High
"Cassie has a lot of the skills that should make her a great player in
this league," McHenry said. "At 6-3, she gives us length and her ability
to play away from the basket will give us a different look. We are
excited to have Cassie in our program."
