(Editor’s Note: Montana Western media release)
DILLON — University of Montana Western women’s basketball head coach Lindsay Woolley has announced the signing of NCAA Division II transfer Jenni Weber to an NAIA Letter of intent.
Weber, a 5-foot-10 guard from Elburn, Ill., transfers to Montana Western after redshirting last season at Bemidji State University, a NCAA Division II school in Bemidji, Minn.
“Jenni is an excellent shooter with a quick release and good size for a guard,” Woolley said. “We are excited to watch her develop over the next four years.”
In high school Weber averaged 17.6 points, six rebounds, and two steals per game as she led the Kaneland High Knights to the 2016-17 regional championship. She shot 49 percent from the field, including 42 percent from 3-point range, and 81 percent from the charity stripe, earning her all-Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference, all-area and all-state honorable mention honors. She holds several KHS records with most 3-pointers made in a game, season, and career, as well as best free-throw percentage in a season and career.
Jenni joins her older sister Jessie Weber at Montana Western. Jessie is entering her junior year as a defensive specialist for the Bulldog volleyball team.
Jenni is a member of the National Honor Society, an honor roll student, and all-academic team selection. She is the daughter of Bob and Cindy Weber, and plans to major in business administration.
