CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper College women’s basketball won another Region IX title this season, and they continued to produce high-quality basketball players for the next level of college basketball. Four signed to continue their college basketball careers on Thursday.

Joseana Vaz, Dejaan Schuler and Belen Morales-Lopez all signed to play at the Division 1 level. Kate Robertson, a Natrona County grad, signed to play at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, a Division II school that plays in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Robertson averaged 6.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season for the Lady Thunderbirds. For the former Filly, it will be the first time that she takes her talents outside of the Oil City after her two-year career at Casper College.

“I’m super excited. Being from Casper I think I’m excited to get out and experience a little bit more of the world,” said Robertson with her three teammates to her left. “I think why I chose Anchorage is just their mentality of winning and coming from a winning program I wanted to continue to that at my next place.”

The Seawolves have a winning culture built in Anchorage. The team is coming off a 20-7 season and has won six out of the last eight GNAC conference championships.

With Robertson heading northwest to Anchorage, the T-Birds that celebrated Signing Day on Thursday nearly covered the four corners of the United States.

Schuler will head to Stetson University in Florida, and Morales-Lopez will take her talents to the University of New Hampshire.

Vaz won’t have to travel far to join the women’s basketball program at Colorado State in Fort Collins.

Congratulations to all of the signees and their families.
