Iowa St women add Jarosinski in transfer

Lindsey Jaronsinski

AMES — Iowa State women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly announced on Monday the addition of Lindsey Jarosinski, a freshman transfer from Wake Forest.

Jarosinski is a 6-foot-3 forward from Medinah, Ill., who played in 27 of the Demon Deacons’ 30 games this past season. She averaged 9.1 minutes played, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 points per game for Wake Forest, which finished 10-20 overall and 1-15 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“We could not be more excited to add Lindsey to the Iowa State family,” said Fennelly. “Lindsey was rated as a top-50 player out of high school and was pursued by many schools when she decided to transfer. She fits the ‘Iowa State way’ and what we need on our team both on and off the court.”

Jarosinski will have to sit out for one year due to NCAA transfer rules. Her best game as a Demon Deacon came in an 11-point, 7-rebound performance in a 55-44 loss to Duke in which she played a season-high 29 minutes off the bench.

“Lindsey adds much needed depth to our inside game,” added Fennelly. “This redshirt year will be great for her in every way. I know our fans are going to enjoy watching her for three years in a Cyclone uniform.”

Jarosinski was a four-year starter at Montini Catholic High School in Lombard, Ill. — a nearby suburb of Chicago — who played on three state tournament teams and was an academic all-conference selection three times.
