FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Colorado State women’s basketball team signed Wisconsin native, Taylor Varsho to its roster Tuesday. Interim head coach Dick Lein made the announcement.

Varsho, a 5-6 guard, ended her high school career as Marshfield High School’s career-leading scorer with 1,367 points. She averaged 18.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists as a senior. She was an all-state player as a sophomore, junior and senior. Her school went 61-13 in Varsho’s three seasons.

In 2011, Varsho suffered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee, missing the summer club season, but she returned Dec. 16 for part of her final season.

Varsho is looking forward to becoming a Ram.

“The atmosphere around Fort Collins is great, and there is so much to do in Fort Collins,” said Varsho. “The girls on the team are wonderful. (CSU) has been my No. 1 all along.”

Varsho is the fifth signee for the 2012-13 season. The others are Courtney Lisowski, a 6-foot wing/guard from Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif.; Emily Johnson, a 5-11 guard from Georgetown (Texas) HS; Caitlin Duffy, a 5-11 guard from St. Thomas More HS in Rapid City, S.D.; and Hali Ford, a guard/forward from Affton HS in St. Louis.
