HAMDEN, Conn. Quinnipiac University women's basketball head coach Tricia Fabbri announced the signing of guard Lisa Lebak (Robbinsville, N.J.) to a National Letter of Intent. Lebak will join the Bobcats for the 2009-10 season after a four-year career at Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J.
During her senior season, Lebak led Peddie School to a New Jersey Prep School State Championship, while also claiming the MAPL League Title. She served as team captain and was named the recipient of the team's Coach's Award, presented to the player who best exemplifies sportsmanship, good citizenship, loyalty and commitment, and used those qualities to contribute to the success of the varsity basketball team.
A three-year starter at Peddie School, Lebak was named to the Trenton Times' First Team All-Prep her sophomore and senior seasons and by the Philadelphia Inquirer her junior campaign. During her four-year high school career, her team won the New Jersey State Prep Championship each season, while also capturing four MAPL titles as well. Peddie School finished the season ranked 43rd in the nation and 8th in the East by the ESPN RISE national poll.
"Lisa is a great player and will give us great depth in the backcourt," said Fabbri. "She has a consistent shot and will be an important part of our young core of guards. I expect her to come in and challenge for a spot in our backcourt with the spots vacated by our graduating seniors."
Lebak was also a member of the golf and soccer teams during her high-school career, earning 12 varsity letters. She was a three-time starter on the varsity soccer team, helping Peddie School capture the MAPL Championship in each of her last three seasons. A decorated golfer, she was a two-time captain and helped lead Peddie School to the New Jersey State Prep Championship in her sophomore, junior and senior seasons. She finished the 2009 State Championship as the second-overall individual one season after finishing fifth as a junior in 2008.
