Klamath Falls, Ore. - Oregon Tech head women's basketball coach, Matt Greenleaf, announced that Jennifer Kimbrow has signed a letter-of-intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Oregon Tech next year.

Kimbrow, an honorable mention all-league selection for West Linn High School in 2007, competed three-seasons for the Lions and helped lead her team to two-consecutive runs into the state championships tournament.

The 6-0 post player then played two seasons at Lane Community College in Eugene, helping lead the Titans to a 56-9 overall record, two-straight NWAACC Southern Region championships and back-to-back NWAACC championship in 2008 and 2009.

Kimbrow averaged 10.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per contest during her sophomore season, capping off her career being named the 2009 NWAACC Tournament MVP. Kimbrow currently ranks second on the Lane Community College all-time list for career field goal percentage (54.0%).

"I am very excited that Jennifer has decided to continue her education and playing career at Oregon Tech." said Greenleaf "Jennifer is a player that will make an immediate impact on our program. We are very fortunate whenever we get a player from such a quality program as Lane.  You know you are going to get a student/athlete that works hard, plays unselfish and understands what it takes to win.  She will be a strong defensive presence and understands that defense and rebounding are what wins games." Greenleaf continues "Jennifer will be one of three players on next year's roster (Jennifer Kimbrow, Nicole Morgan, Brittany Cherry) that have won an NWAACC championship and this experience will be key in achieving our goal of getting to the NAIA national tournament next year."

Jennifer is the daughter of James and Ronda Kimbrow and will major in Health Science at Oregon Tech this fall.
