LINDSBORG — Colby High graduate Shaila Giebler is the newest member of the Bethany College women’s basketball team.
The 5-7 guard recently signed her letter of intent to join the Swedes of coach Brett Morehouse.
She lettered for two years at Colby, earning GWAC honorable mention this past season and was picked for the Northwest Kansas All-Star Game. She has played club basketball for the Colorado Shine.
Giebler averaged 9.2 points per game her senior year, as well as 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals.
She also took part in volleyball and track, while competing for a swim club as she’s a well-rounded athlete. Giebler was on the Honor Roll, Principal's Honor Roll and was a part of the National Society of Scholars. She earned KMEA State Honors for vocal, choir and ensemble.
"We are very pleased to announce the signing of Shaila Giebler," Morehouse said. "She will be an outstanding addition to both our athletic and academic programs here at Bethany. We think Shaila is just starting to scratch the surface of her athletic potential and that is evident by the progress she has made on the basketball court over the last few years playing for Colby High School and the Colorado Shine. During her on-campus visit, I was very impressed by her ability to pick up new drills and put them into practice. Shaila's previous coaches have all confirmed her competitiveness and work ethic and that she truly loves the game of basketball. I am excited to see how much Shaila can improve over the next few months and we look forward to having her join the Swedes this fall."
She is the daughter of Bruce and Deb Giebler. She has a 3.74 grade point average, and plans to major in pre-med.
