OMAHA, Neb. – Corryne Millett of Minden, Nev. has signed her letter of intent to continue her education and basketball career at College of Saint Mary. Millett will be transferring in from College of San Mateo.
"We are super excited to add Corryne Millett to our roster," CSM Coach Jesse Flanagan said. "She is a high-quality kid both on and off the court. On the court, she gives us that presence in the middle that we have been lacking. On the offense end, she can knock down the mid-range jumper, plus she can finish around the rim. She is also relentless on the glass.
"Off the court, Corryne is an outstanding person. She has a big heart and will be an excellent teammate."
The 6-0 forward is the daughter of Joe Millett and Shelli Schaar. She graduated from Douglas High School where she played basketball and soccer for four years, while also participating in track and field for two years. In basketball she was a second team all-league player her sophomore year and a first team all-league player her junior and senior years. She also was selected for the all-star game her senior year.
Since high school Millett has been playing at College of San Mateo in San Mateo, Calif. She says her favorite sports heroes are Hope Solo and Jackie Robinson. Her greatest sports moment to date is winning the Northern Region title in women's soccer in 2014-15. Outside of basketball, she enjoys hiking, biking and paddle boarding.
Millett plans to study kinesiology at CSM.
"I feel I will be successful at College of Saint Mary," she said. "Between academics and athletics there is a lot of opportunity to reach my goals as a student-athlete. I am excited to take a new adventure a little bit further away from Carson City than I was before."
