Gieske joins the Kodiaks

Lethbridge College Kodiaks Women’s Basketball team is pleased to announce today the signing of Jenelle Gieske for the 2011-2012 season. Gieske played last year for the Magrath Pandas and Southern Alberta High School Basketball League Coach of the year Ross Blackmer. She was named MVP of the league and led the conference is scoring and a berth in the 3A Provincials.

Gieske joins the Kodiaks as her parents, Shannon and Al, did and as both were part of some very talented Lethbridge teams of the past coached by John Jasiukiewicz and Dave Adams respectively.

Coach Harrison looks for Jenelle, a 6ʹ0ʺ forward, to make an immediate impact on the program with her talent and raw athleticism. ʺWe had the opportunity to watch Jenelle play several games this past season and we were always impressed with what she brings to the court. She is one of the top players in the province and we are looking forward to seeing her get even better in a Lethbridge uniform.ʺ
