Superior, Wisc. - When the Superior Spartans face Mukwonago at the Resch Center in Green Bay in the State Division I Semifinals, it will be at the same building where Jessica Lindstrom will play her college ball next season as she has committed to Division I Green Bay.

The recent 2,000 point scorer is also one of three finalists for the Player of the Year Award from Espn Wisconsin. The other finalists are Mackenzie Latt of Sussex Hamilton and Arike Ogunbowale of Divine Savior Holy Angels. The winner will be announced on April 24th.

Lindstrom received an honor from the website Wissports.net as she was named the Top Senior Post Player.

With all the individual recognition, Lindstrom says she appreciates it, but that she credits her teammates.

"The only way I look good out there is because of my teammates around me and I could never do any of it all by myself, so I thank all of them for all of the nominations that I have received and I thank them (nominating groups) too. I should be our team, they should nominate our team," says Lindstrom.
