Valparaiso bowling head coach Shon Washington announced today that Sadie Jasinski has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Crusader bowling program as a freshman for the 2011-2012 campaign.
A four-year starter for Franklin [Wis.] H.S., Jasinski has served as team captain and been named team MVP. Jasinski rolled anchor for the Sabers as they captured the District 1 Conference Championship each of the last two years, earning First Team All-Conference accolades as a senior after receiving Second Team honors as a junior. Jasinski qualified for the National Junior Gold Scholarship Tournament this year, and finished in second place at the Wisconsin Scholarship Bowling Club Tournament in Nov. 2010.
“Sadie is a terrific addition to our program,” said Washington. “She gives us a left-handed presence on the lanes and a great teammate off the lanes. She is an extremely energetic and driven young lady. I am confident she will do well academically and athletically in such a positive and supportive environment as Valparaiso University. I would like to thank her parents, Jim and Lorrie Jasinski, and also her personal coach, Steve Michelfelder, for their support of Sadie while making her decision to attend Valpo.”
