Valley City State University head women's basketball coach Jill DeVries announced that Amanda Brown, a 5'9' guard from Limon, CO has signed a DAC letter-of-intent to play basketball at VCSU in 2007-08.
Brown averaged 15 points and seven rebounds for the Limon Badger's her senior season. She led her team to three consecutive state tournament championships and the fifth in six seasons. Her game high 28 points, including a 10-for-10 effort at the free-throw line in the Badger's double-overtime state championship victory, helped keep Limon's state title streak alive.
'Amanda is a winner. She knows what it takes to take your game to the next level.' commented Coach DeVries. 'She is a versatile guard who can shoot from the perimeter and finish inside. What we are really excited about is that she just hates to lose.'
Brown was named Colorado's 2007 2A Ms. Basketball as the first team all-state player of the year.
Brown is a three sport athlete at Limon. She competes in softball (shortstop, 3A all-state honorable mention) and track (member of three-time 2A state champions; triple jump; 4x100-yard relay, 4x200, defending champion; 4x400, three-time defending champion, and medley relay, defending champion).
Amanda is the daughter of Mark and Kathy Brown. Mark is the head coach at Limon HS and a VCSU graduate. He was honored as 2A Coach of the Year in Colorado.
