AG graduates Madrigal, Wolf earn spots on Cal Poly basketball team as walk-ons

Two former Arroyo Grande High stars have earned walk-on positions with the Cal Poly women's basketball team.

Head coach Faith Mimnaugh confirmed that Lindsey Wolf and Heather Madrigal will be part of the Mustangs roster for the 2012-13 season. Mimnaugh says she loves how Heather works and competes and thinks Lindsey can help the team with her 3-point shooting.

The two former Eagles were instrumental in Arroyo Grande's historic CIF title run their senior season when they finished 27-6 and won the program's first-ever CIF title.

The 6-1 Wolf averaged 13 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. She made 40% of her 126 3-point shots and 80% of her free throws. She is thrilled to continue a family tradition.

"It's just an honor even to go to Cal Poly and then to be a student-athlete here. I grew up in the area here so it makes it more special and my dad played here. So it's just an honor to play with these girls that I've seen play before too," said Wolf, who said her mother and grandfather also attended Cal Poly. "I hope to just be a contributor to the team, hopefully this year and definitely the years to come," added Wolf.

The 5-8 Madrigal averaged 16.2 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game in her only year with the Eagles. She played her first three seasons at St. Joseph.

They will join Righetti High graduate Molly Schlemer, who is a junior, on the Mustangs in the upcoming season.
