Lady Chiefs’ Brown signs with Central

Lady Chiefs' Brown signs with Central

Mar 22, 2017 - By Randy Tucker, Staff Writer

Wyoming Indian's all-state guard has committed to the Lady Rustlers.

Amryn Brown, one of the best guards in Wyoming prep basketball, has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Central Wyoming College Rustlers next fall.

The signing was a coup for CWC head coach Ken Swartz, who will field a freshman-laden team next fall.

"I like her intensity and her drive," said Swartz. "She makes good decisions, is unselfish, and I think she's a good all-around player."

Brown joins Marissa Arnold, a 5-foot-9 all-around player from Rocky Mountain High School, as the only Wyoming players among an incoming Central roster that will have 11 freshmen.

Brown's quickness, court sense and shooting ability lend well to the next level of play. She is a strong, quick player who can handle the enhanced physical nature of junior college basketball.

Brown paced the Chiefs to a Class 2-A runner-up finish this season and is one of the all-time leading scorers for head coach Aleta Moss and the WIHS Lady Chiefs.

Brown has earned postseason honors with her third selection to the all-conference and all-state teams and was name the Rocky Mountain Conference Player of the Year. She also is the Bob Carey Memorial award winner as the best girls basketball player in Class 1-A or 2-A.

Brown's skill off the dribble, tenacious defense and high skill level will serve her well in the tough competition she will face in Region IX basketball.

Brown comes as the latest member of a renowned Fremont County basketball family.

Her grandfather, Shannon Brown, led the St. Stephen's Eagles to back-to-back state championships in 1959 and 1960 and was featured in Sports Illustrated. Her uncle, Jay Brown, was part of head coach Alfred Redman's reign in a 50-game consecutive win streak, and cousin Jay Brown was one of the best players to ever take the floor for St. Stephen's.

Brown is the daughter of Kirsten Martel and Dale Brown and the granddaughter of Wes Martel.
