BURLINGTON, VT --- The UVM women's basketball team has added a new Vermonter to their long list of homegrown talent.
Lamoille High School senior-to-be Rachel Wellman has verbally accepted a scholarship to play at Vermont in the fall of 2009.
The 5-10 guard helped lead the Lancers to the Division Two state championship two years ago, and back to the title game this past season.
During a phone interview on her way to an AAU game Tuesday, Rachel told Channel Three Sports Mike McCune that she was "On cloud 9" when coach Sharon Dawley offered her the scholarship last Thursday night and she can't wait to join the team she's grown up watching.
