Lourdes University women’s basketball coach Karen McConnell has announced that Lizzie Spence has signed a letter of intent to play for the Gray Wolves beginning with the 2014-2015 season.
Spence, a native of Brooklyn Heights, Ohio, earned Honorable Mention All-State honors while playing at Cuyahoga Heights High School.
“Lizzie is an excellent athlete who runs the floor very well,” McConnell said. “She can hit the three or get to the basket on offense, and loves to mix it up on defense. She will provide a great deal of versatility on the wing or at the small forward. She is a competitor that knows how to win and I look forward to coaching her the next four years.”
A First Team All-Chagrin Valley Metro Conference selection as a junior, she was named to the league’s Second Team as a senior. She also garnered First Team All-District and Honorable Mention All-Region honors for the 2013-2014 season.
A multi-sport athlete, Spence also played soccer and competed in track and field for the Redskins during her prep career.
