Brommenschenkel Signs with Vikings

Valley City State women’s basketball coach Jill DeVries announced Wednesday that Brooke Brommenschenkel has signed a letter of intent to attend classes at VCSU and play basketball for the Vikings this fall.

Brommenschenkel, a 5-foot-7-inch shooting guard, completed her high school career at Norman County West (Minn.), where she is the school’s all-time leading scorer with 1,451 points.

“We are very excited about Brooke joining our Viking family after having watched her grow as a player for three years,” said DeVries. “She has great character, a tireless work ethic, and fits the culture of VCSU women’s basketball.”

Brommenschenkel, a three-time All-Conference selection in the Pine to Prairie Conference, averaged 16.3 points and five rebounds per game this season to help Norman County West to a 10-15 overall record under head coach Phil Gaugler. Brommen saved her best for last, averaging 21 points per contest in the final seven games of her career.

In her junior season, Brommenschenkel averaged 18.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game as the Panthers posted a 14-12 record. Brommenschenkel made 107 three-pointers across her final two seasons at Norman County West, and scored 20 or more points in 23 games during her career.

“Brooke has developed into a consistent perimeter threat from beyond the arc,” DeVries said. “She can also shoot a pull-up jumper and finish, going to the rim. We look forward to working with her and helping her develop into an outstanding guard in the North Star Athletic Association.”

Brommenschenkel, the daughter of Danielle and Paul Brommenschenkel, plans to major in business.

Brommenschenkel joins Nicole Duske (forward, Montrose, Minn.), Rae Beaver (forward, Rolette, N.D.), and Mikaela Fischer (guard/forward, Goodwin, S.D.) as signed recruits for the 2014-15 season.

Valley City State University is a member of the North Star Athletic Association and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. With DeVries as head coach, the Vikings qualified for three straight NAIA National Tournaments from 2011-2013.
