WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: Krause leaving

Sam Davis | Monday, September 1, 2003

Then there were three.

Basketball player Jill Krause decided late last week that she would not continue playing basketball for the Irish, making her the third person from the six-member recruiting class of 2005 to quit the team. Allison Bustamante and Kelsey Wicks also quit McGraw’s team in the past two years. Bustamante left because of homesickness, while Wicks quit for unspecified reasons. That leaves Teresa Borton, Katy Flecky and Jacqueline Batteast still on the team from that class.

Krause played in 20 games last season for Notre Dame, averaging 3.5 minutes and 0.4 points per game.

McGraw said she will miss Krause.

“Jill is an amazing person with a tremendous heart and spirit,” McGraw said. “We appreciate all she contributed to our team, both on and off the court over the past two years.  We wish her the best as she continues working towards her degree here at Notre Dame.”

Krause is the granddaughter of legendary Notre Dame figure Edward “Moose” Krause.
