One of the players who made up a solid foundation for the Wethersfield girls' basketball team, senior forward Caitlin Miller, will be taking her game to Black Hawk College for the 2013-14 season after signing with BHC on Thursday.

This past season, Miller contributed five points and 6.5 rebounds per game for a Lady Geese squad that finished 23-8 and reached the Class 1A regional finals, losing to eventual third-place state finisher Annawan on its home floor.

In 2011-12, she contributed to a Wethersfield squad that advanced to the 1A sectional finals, once again falling to Annawan. She was also a member of the Annawan-Wethersfield softball team that won a 1A regional crown in '11.
