Oregon St. women's basketball has added an experienced guard to the team. Mollee Schwegler, a 5'7" native of Rainier, OR, has signed with Scott Rueck's squad, after playing the last two seasons for Lower Columbia Community College in Longview, WA.
Schwegler earned NWAACC Western Division first team honors as a freshman, placing in the top 15 in the conference in scoring (15.7 points per game), steals (77), and assists (3.7). As a sophomore, she stepped up her production, scoring 18.3 points per game while also serving up 6.7 assists. As a result, she earned the Western Division's Most Valuable Player honor.
Schwegler led the Lady Devils to a 40-16 overall record in two seasons, which included a 30-2 mark in league. During her sophomore campaign, Lower Columbia went 16-0 in Western Division play. She also became LCC's all time leading scorer, with 915 points (16.3 per game), and averaged 4.95 assists and 2.8 steals per game overall.
As a senior at Rainier, Schwegler led the Columbians back to the Oregon 3A tournament Final 4, after they had completed a perfect season in her junior campaign, claiming the state title.
Schwegler visited numerous schools, including Wever St., San Diego, Wyoming, and Pacific University (Stockton, CA), as well as several Division II schools before selecting Oregon St.
"I like the school, it's close to home and the opportunity to play in the Pac-12 doesn't come along very often," said Schwegler.
Schwegler plans to study either criminal justice or sports medicine.
