NRHEG’s Schultz to Gophers
New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva senior Jade Schultz will join teammate Carlie Wagner on the University of Minnesota women’s basketball team next fall according to a tweet on Monday by MSHSL Media Specialist John Millea. Schultz’s dad, NRHEG head coach John Schultz, confirmed via email that his daughter, Jade, committed to the U of M over the weekend.
The 5’9” forward averages 12 ppg and 8 rpg for the Panthers (26-0) this season. NRHEG will play conference rival Waterville-Elysian-Morristown for the Subsection 2AA South championship at MSU-Mankato tonight at 8 PM on Kat Kountry 104.9 FM.

Wagner, who officially signed with Pam Borton’s squad in February, is the State’s 3rd leading all-time scorer (3,779) and is just 110 points from passing Minneapolis South’s Tayler Hill for second all-time.
