Norse land Athens’ Marx for next season

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Lindsey Marx, a 2002 graduate of Athens (Ohio) High School, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Northern Kentucky University and play women’s basketball next season.

Marx, a 6-foot-2 center/forward, earned four letters in basketball at Athens. She was named All-Southeastern Ohio Athletic League as a senior after averaging 8.0 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. The Bulldogs posted an 18-5 record and won the sectional championship last season.

Marx will join an NKU women's basketball team that posted a 26-7 record last season and advanced to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the third time in the past four years. The Norse finished with a No. 5 national ranking in the NCAA Division II poll.

NKU also won the Great Lakes Valley Conference regular-season championship in 2002. The Norse will return two starters and eight letterwinners from that team.
