Meister drive

Wisconsin Dells junior Katelyn Meister drives past Mauston senior Grace Hammer for a layup during a game at Wisconsin Dells High School back in February. On Monday, Meister announced her commitment to play college basketball at Michigan Tech University.

Wisconsin Dells senior Katelyn Meister announced via Twitter on Monday that she has orally committed to Michigan Tech for women’s basketball.

The 5-foot-11 Meister, who can play guard or forward, averaged 19.6 points and 7.5 rebounds for the Wisconsin Dells girls basketball team last season.

She helped lead Wisconsin Dells to the South Central Conference title and its first state tournament appearance.

Meister scored a career-high 34 points in Wisconsin Dells’ 65-45 win over Poynette on Feb. 2 and she really turned things on in the postseason. In the Chiefs run to state, Meister scored 17 or more points in every game, including 26 in the 58-47 semifinal loss to eventual state champion Marshall. In the process, Meister surpassed the career 1,000-point mark, finishing her junior year with 1,004.

Meister, who averaged three steals per game and shot 56.5 percent from the field, was a unanimous first-team all-conference selection in the South Central in each of the last two years.

“I am SO beyond happy to verbally commit to playing the game I love at the next level for coaches, teammates, and a school that makes me smile so big,” Meister said in a statement she posted on Twitter. “Thank you to this amazing community for all of the support and thank you to my teammates and my best friends for pushing me at practices and for all the hugs, laughs and smiles. I’m excited for what my future at MTU holds – Go Huskies!!

Michigan Tech is an NCAA Division II basketball program in Houghton, Michigan.
