Yellow Jackets Ink Swedish National Team Member for 2010-11 Class

May 3, 2010

ATLANTA – Frida Fogdemark, a 6-2 forward from Östertälje, Sweden, has signed a national letter-of-intent with Georgia Tech and will enroll at the Institute in the fall and play basketball for the Yellow Jackets, announced head coach MaChelle Joseph Monday.

“Frida is a great addition to an already strong class,” Joseph said. “She will give us much needed three-point shooting on the perimeter and at 6-2; she has the versatility and athleticism we like.”

Fogdemark, who will add over five years of international experience to the squad, most recently has been playing on the undefeated U-20 Swedish National Team. Last year, she helped the national team to a third-place finish at the 2009 U-18 European Championships and was a catalyst in the team’s first-place finish at the 2009 U-18 Nordic Championships.

“Frida’s international experience separates her,” Joseph added. “She led the U-18 Swedish National Team in three-pointers made and three-point field-goal percentage last summer.”

At the European Championships, Fogdemark averaged 10.1 points and 4.8 rebounds in nine games. She led all players at the Championships in three-pointers made (2.8) and ranked fifth overall in three-point field-goal percentage (.417).

Fogdemark, who played with current Yellow Jacket Danielle Hamilton-Carter on the 2008 U-18 Swedish National Team, will become the fifth player from Sweden since 2000 to wear a Georgia Tech uniform.
