Kelly Hartig Transfers From Virginia
CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia forward Kelly Hartig (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) has transferred from the University of Virginia, head women’s basketball coach Debbie Ryan announced Tuesday.
Hartig appeared in 34 games last season as a sophomore, starting 32. She averaged 1.4 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. As a freshman in 2007-08, she played in 26 games.
“I have chosen to leave the University of Virginia for personal reasons and at this time I have no plans to continue playing college basketball,” Hartig said. “I appreciate everything the University of Virginia women’s basketball staff, support staff and players have done for me. I wish them all the best and will always be a Cavalier women’s basketball fan.”
Hartig will attend the University of Colorado-Denver beginning with the 2009-10 academic year.
“We will really miss Kelly but we support her decision to change directions academically,” Ryan said. “She was an integral part of our program these past two years and we all wish her the best in the future.”
