New Richmond grad Buckingham acclimating well to U. of Minnesota

New Richmond graduate Josie Buckingham, third from the left, poses with the five other newcomers to the University of Minnesota’s women’s basketball team.

Buckingham got onto campus earlier this summer to better acclimate herself with the college lifestyle and prepare for the upcoming basketball season.

Unfortunately, she is recovering from a twisted ankle suffered during an open gym. She should be ready to play when the Lady Gophers begin their exhibition season on Oct. 29 vs. Winona State.
