ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - University of New Mexico women's basketball coach Don Flanagan announced the signing of Christian Shelter to a National Letter-of-Intent today.

Shelter will join incoming freshmen Amy Beggin (Roseville Area High School/Maplewood, Minn.), Valerie Kast (Gallup High School/Estonia) and Eileen Weissmann (Loyola Academy/Chicago, Ill.) as members of the Lobo women's basketball program in the fall.
