The UC Davis women\’s basketball team announced on Monday that Lauren Beyer from Bradshaw Christian High School in Sacramento, Sydnee Fipps from Yosemite High (Oakhurst) and Emily Vann of St. Mary\’s Prep (Berkeley) are heading to The Pavilion next fall.

\n

The trio has signed National Collegiate Letters of Intent and will become part of the program that is the media\’s favorite to win the 2011 Big West Conference championship.

\n

Beyer, a McDonald\’s High School All-America nominee, is a 6-foot-1 wing who has helped lead Bradshaw Christian to a 79-18 record over the past three years — including a perfect 34-0 record in the Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League. Beyer has been named to the all-league first team three times, including last season when she averaged 14 points a game and was named MVP.

\n

Last year, while playing against national power St. Mary\’s of Stockton, Beyer poured in 29 points. She averaged 17 points a night during the NorCal playoffs as section champion Bradshaw Christian advanced to the CIF Division V state semifinals.

\n

“What we really like about her is that she has the ability, like Paige (Mintun) and Lauren

\n

(Juric), to play on the perimeter and shoot the three. (She) is very mobile and can run the floor,” outgoing Aggie coach Sandy Simpson said.

\n

Fipps is a 5-10 wing who averaged 24.5 points and 10 rebounds a game for Yosemite, which finished 31-4 overall (10-0 in the North Sequoia League) last season.

\n

Fipps is a three-time all-league performer who added 32 3-pointers last season. Yosemite advanced to the quarterfinals of the CIF state championship Division II tournament. Fipps was the third-highest scoring junior in the state last season.

\n

“Sydnee\’s got a scorer\’s mentality and can play either guard spot,” Simpson added. “She\’s got the size we like at the guard position and is a great one-on-one player, but is selfless and plays for the team first. She has great instincts defensively, in terms of playing angles, which is really what our defense is about.”

\n

Vann is a 6-2 post, who averaged 12.5 points, nine rebounds, three assist per game for a St. Mary\’s team that posted a 31-4 record last year. Vann led her school to the CIF Division IV state championship game. Her father David was drafted by the Golden State Warriors in 1982 and was once the all-time leading scorer at St. Mary\’s.

\n

“Emily is extremely strong but impressively mobile,” Simpson continued. “She is very agile and can play a finesse game or play a power game. She\’s another player that can shoot the three or attack the rim. Emily is also a great rebounder and a very graceful passer.”
