Casey Stow, a 5’5 guard from Triton Central High, has signed her letter of intent to become a Forester this fall.

Stow helped guide the Tigers to an 18-4 record during her final campaign by averaging 12.1 points, 4.6 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 4.1 steals per contest. She shot 42 percent from the 3-point line and was named the Shelby County MVP as well as her team’s MVP.

As a three-time All Mid Hoosier Conference pick, Stow also earned Shelby County Lion’s Club All-Star honors and was a 2011 Indiana Class Basketball All-Star Classic Girls Senior selection.

Stow’s name will go down in the Triton Central record books as she finished her stellar prep career having recorded the most steals in a game (12), season (90) and career (219). She also tied the record for most 3-pointers in a game with seven and tallied 776 career points to place her tenth on the Tiger’s list of all-time scorers.

“Casey is a great catch for us late in the recruiting year,” comments Coach Culler. “We’re glad she changed her mind about continuing her athletic career in college. She’s a very talented player who has strengths that will work well in our system. She has quick feet and hands which give her the tools to apply a lot of pressure on the ball and she can shoot the three. I’m excited to have her join the team!”

Stow plans to major in nursing and is the daughter of Brett and Deborah Stow from Fairland, Indiana.
