LSSU signs Park Falls, Wis., post player

May 16, 2008

SAULT STE. MARIE - Cassy Schemberger, a 5-11 post player from Park Falls, Wis., has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Lake Superior State.

Schemberger became Park Falls High School's career leader in rebounds (1,013) and points (1,519) despite missing half of the 2007-08 season while recovering from a torn ACL. She was one of 18 Wisconsin prep players to receive a McDonald's All-Star Game nomination in 2008. Other special honors include the 2008 Wendy's Heisman Award, Wisconsin Sports Advocate of Wisconsin Award and All-Lumberjack Conference First Team honors. She was ranked 26th among Wisconsin high school seniors by Wishoops and averaged 20.6 points and 11.3 rebounds per game while playing in 12 contests.

"We are very fortunate to have signed Cassy Schemberger," LSSU women's basketball coach Jamie Pewinski said. "She is an excellent student and has a tremendous work ethic, as demonstrated by her quick recovery from ACL surgery over the summer to make it back for the end of her senior season. Her attitude and style of play are going to fit in perfectly with the rest of the team and our style of play."

Schemberger, who earned Wisconsin all-state honors as a junior, was the Lumberjack Conference most-valuable player in 2006 and '07. She led the league in rebounding in 2005 and '07, and was the league's top scorer in '06.

LSSU's 2008 recruiting class also includes Riverview High School guard/forward Sarah Cubr, who committed during the fall signing period. Cubr averaged 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals per game during her senior campaign. The 1,000-point scorer helped lead Riverview to a sixth straight Class B regional title.
