Valley City State University women's basketball coach Jill DeVries announced today that Paige Tompkins, Milnor, ND (Bemidji State) has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and basketball career at VCSU.
Tompkins, a 6'1' post player, transfers after completing her freshman year of eligibility at Bemidji State University. She averaged five minutes of playing time in 17 games for the Beavers, averaging 1.7 points and 2.1 rebounds per game.
'Paige is a great addition to our women's basketball program. She is a dual threat with her ability to shoot the three as well as be an offense presence in the paint for us next season.' says Coach DeVries. 'She is a person of character who will fit in very well with our returning players.'
Tompkins played her high school basketball at Milnor high school where she scored over 1000 career points and nabbed over 1000 career rebounds. She was a three-time all-district and two-time All-Wild Rice conference performer, as well as a 2011 Lion's Class B All-Star.
Tompkins lettered in four sports at Milnor high school and will join the VCSU golf team as well next fall.
