LAZBUDDIE — Chelsee Nichols, a four-year starter at Lazbuddie High School in Parmer County, is planning to sign to play women’s basketball for coach Linden Weese at Eastern New Mexico University.

The national signing date is April 9.

Nichols, a 5-foot-9 forward, said she attended camps conducted by Weese over the past couple of summers and said the Zias’ style of play mirrors her own.

“Coach Weese has been talking to me for about two years,” Nichols said. “It’s really like how I’ve played the last couple of years at Lazbuddie.”
