Coach Lister Signs Texas Standout

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Baker University head women's basketball coach Ben Lister and his coaching staff have signed Katy, Texas standout Sydney Buchel to a national letter of intent and she will join the Wildcats next season.

The Seven Lakes High School product started all four years at the varsity level and scored over 1,000 points and grabbed over 1,000 rebounds in her high school career.

She chose Baker over Oral Roberts, Dartmouth, University of Denver, Sam Houston State and UT-Dallas.

"Being able to land a recruit with Sydney's background and accomplishments is just another testament to the growth of our program," said Lister. "Sydney has played against tremendous competition for four years at the high school level in the Houston, Texas area. Her accolades and success speak for themselves. I could not be more excited to have her join Baker next year as she brings toughness and experience along with the ability to play multiple positions in our offense. Sydney plays both ends and her rebounding numbers show that. Her high school program has excelled during her four years, and it's always an added bonus when you can beat out multiple programs when recruiting a player, especially NCAA Division I level schools. We are very much looking forward to her career here."

She holds the Seven Lakes High school records in single game rebounds, single season rebounds, career rebounds and single game blocks.

Baker is currently riding a seven game winning straight and has a hold of third-place in the Heart of America Athletic Conference standings with its 18-8 overall record and 11-3 conference mark.

The Wildcats will take on rival No. 9 ranked MidAmerica Nazarene this Thursday, Feb. 14 on Valentines Day at 5:30 p.m. in Olathe, Kan.
