Harrison inked by Chico State

-A +A
Graduating senior Courtney Harrison of Colfax High is one of three players that the Chico State women’s basketball program has signed to play for the Wildcats next season. Chico State coach Molly Goodenbour this week announced the signing of three players who will attend Chico State beginning this fall. Harrison will be joined by Emeryville High School senior Synchro Bull and Sierra Community College transfer Annelise Miller to join the program for the 2008-09 season. Bull, a 5-foot-7 guard, averaged 23 points and 10.2 rebounds per game last season and finished ninth in the state in scoring. The Division V All-State selection and Honorable Mention San Francisco Chronicle All-Metro Team pick also notched 4.9 assists and 3.5 steals per game. “Synchro is athletic and quick and was relied upon to do a little bit of everything for her high school team,” said Goodenbour. “She will play the point and wing positions for us and add to our depth and athleticism there. She loves to play defense and we look forward to having her defensive presence in the lineup.” Harrison, a 5-foot-9 guard, was a four-year varsity starter and three-time All-League selection. She averaged 11 points and six rebounds per game while burying 70 3-pointers as a senior. “Courtney is an excellent shooter and very good all-around athlete,” said Goodenbour. “She will give us size and shooting on the perimeter and she has a great work ethic.” Miller, the Sierra College Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman and sophomore, averaged 9.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.8 steals, and 2.6 assists per game while earning All-Conference honors last season. The 5-foot-10 sophomore helped lead the Wolverines to a 26-7 overall record and 12-2 league mark. “Annie is a relentless worker and a very tenacious player,” said Goodenbour. “She will help us rebound and defend and she’ll be a consistent contributor over the course of the season.” The trio will join a program that lost just one senior from last season’s 28-6 team that qualified for the NCAA Championship Tournament for the sixth year in a row.
