Vernon’s Diane Schuetze has had an extraordinary season in her fourth campaign of CIS basketball.

Schuetze was named both Canada West and CIS player of the week earlier this year, and today, became the first member of the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) WolfPack basketball program to be named a First Team Canada West all-star.

“It has been an amazing season,” she said, when learning of her selection.  “Making playoffs for the first time as a team and now this. It’s amazing. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s definitely because of my teammates because I couldn’t have done it without them.”

The 6-foot-3, VSS Panther grad, led the Canada West in scoring. She played in 18 games scoring 109 field goals, five three points and 111 free throws for 334 points. That was an average of 18.6 points per game.
