Two reserve guards are no longer a part of WKU’s women’s basketball team.

Junior guard Ellen Sholtes has been dismissed from the Lady Topper team, WKU confirmed on Thursday.

That news comes one day after the Bowling Green Daily News reported sophomore walk-on guard Zoe Sibalich is no longer with the team.

No official reason was given for either Sholtes’ dismissal or Sibalich’s departure.

Sholtes, a product of Louisville Mercy Academy, started 11 of 26 games one year ago, averaging 3.5 points per game.

Sibalich, a product of Bowling Green High School, appeared in three games in 2011-2012, averaging 1.0 points per game.

She was arrested last month in Bowling Green for driving under the influence.

Had the two been on the team in 2012-2013, they would’ve competed for playing time with several guards brought in by first-year coach Michelle Clark-Heard, including former Louisville DuPont Manual High School star LeAsia Wright and junior college transfer Bianca McGee.

Sholtes and Sibalich join a list of five Lady Toppers that have either left or been dismissed from the program since Heard became coach.

Other players no longer with the team include Mimi Hill, Tyisha Amos and Summer Fife.
