*SMSU women's basketball signs forward Kendra Snaza to letter of intent*
Southwest Minnesota State head women's basketball coach Allison Kruger announced Thursday that Kendra Snaza, of Milbank, S.D., has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and player career at SMSU. Wednesday was the first day of the early-signing period for NCAA college basketball programs.
Snaza, a 5-foot-8 forward, is a senior at Milbank High School and a three-year letterwinner for the Bulldogs. In her career she has registered 593 points and 361 rebounds. The two-time all-conference performer was named the team's most valuable player the past two seasons.
"Kendra is another versatile player to add to our roster," Kruger said in a press release. "She is a strong player that can do damage in the paint, while also having the ability to step out and be a threat from the 3-point line.
"She is a very competitive player that loves to be in the gym. Her passion for SMSU and becoming a Mustang is rare to find and we can't wait to welcome her to our family."
Snaza is also a four-year letterwinner in volleyball and was named all-state as a junior. Her father, Dan Snaza, was a four-year letterwinner for the Mustang football team from 1984-87.
