Randie Wirt may be the youngest women's basketball coach at Colorado State, but she enters her third season as a member of the Rams. After a successful collegiate and professional career, Wirt has spent the last two seasons working with Jen Warden's program. Wirt brings many things to Colorado State, especially an extensive background in basketball.
A graduate of New Prague High School in Minnesota, Wirt completed her senior year as the school's all-time leading scorer and rebounder, and started in more games than anyone in NPHS history. She also was the first player in school history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark (1,793). In her final season with NPHS, she led the team to the AAA state championship, and also was a finalist for the state's Miss Basketball honor.
Upon graduation, Wirt took her talents to the University of Colorado. At CU, Wirt lettered four years, while earning first-team academic all-Big 12 honors as a sophomore, junior and senior. In her sophomore season, Wirt propelled the Buffs deep into the NCAA Tournament when she hit two big free throws with just eight seconds left in the game to clinch a 62-59 win over No. 2-seeded Stanford. The win put Colorado into the Elite Eight of the touranament.
While at CU, Wirt also worked closely on former head coach Ceal Barry as a basketball camp counselor from 2001-03. After graduating from CU, Wirt competed on the international level in Nokia, Finland, where she played for BC Nokia and won the Naisten SM-Sarja League championship.
"Randie has become a cornerstone at of our program as an assistant coach, player mentor and recruiter," said Warden.
Wirt earned her bachelor of science degree in psychology from CU in 2004.
