Owens Lady Express Basketball Player Signs with UT

  Amy Amstutz, a sophomore record-setter on the Owens Community College women's basketball team, has signed to play women's basketball at the University of Toledo next fall.

  Amstutz, a 6-1 forward, led the Lady Express in scoring this season with an average of 21 points per game. She became the first woman in Owens basketball history to score more than 1,000 points. She was named the Ohio Community College Athletic conference's "Player of the Year" and the Great Lakes Region 12 "Player of the Year".

  She received the prestigious honor of being named a First Team NJCAA All-American player -one of only five student-athletes selected from across the nation. She also was named Most Valuable Player of the Year by Head Coach Bill Gomoluch.

  "We are very proud of Amy's accomplishments this season and we know she'll be moving on to continue her success," Gomoluch said.

  This season, Amstutz averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds per game while shooting .562 from the field and .74 from the foul line.

  A Pandora-Gilboa High School graduate, Amstutz is the first Lady Express player ever to sign with UT. She is the daughter of Dan and Marty Amstutz of Pandora.
