Steinmeyer adds guard for 2012-13

MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State head coach Gene Steinmeyer has announced the early signing of Tember Schechinger to a national letter of intent for the 2012-13 season.

“Tember is a guard who can wear a lot of hats,” said Steinmeyer. “She is an excellent shooter and her aggressiveness on both ends of the court is what caught my eye.”

Schechinger signs with the Bearcats after being recruited by all levels including interest from several Division I schools. She helped led IKM-Manning High, (Manilla, Iowa) to a 19-5 record last year as a junior averaging 13.5 points per game and shooting 52 percent from the field earning First Team All-State honors from the Iowa Girls Coaches Association. She was named All-District and First Team All-Western Valley Conference for the Iowa state tournament qualifier.

She also recorded 94 assists and 87 steals during her junior campaign and added 33 blocks from her guard position. Schechinger played AAU for the Iowa Attack and earned 2011 “Best Basketball Players of AAU” recognition over the previous two summers.
