RAPID CITY --- The South Dakota School of Mines along with the Lady Hardrocker women’s basketball program are pleased to announce the signing of its latest recruit, Silke Forstmann, to the 2009-10 basketball lineup.
Forstmann is a 6-foot-4-inch post player originally from Wiesloch, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. She will be transferring to SD School of Mines after spending the last two seasons at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo.
“Silke is an outstanding person of great character, academics and is very competitive,” said Lady Hardrocker women’s basketball coach Barb Felderman. “She will definitely strengthen our front line. At 6-4, she will have the ability to change a lot of shots on defense. Offensively, Silke is a threat around the lane but also has a beautiful shot.”
Forstmann helped guide the Northeastern Generals to a 29-2 overall mark this past season and individually was named an Academic All-American.
While attending SD School of Mines Forstmann plans to take up a major in Chemistry.
