Tara Stauffacher

Beaver Dam's Tara Stauffacher (front) goes to the basket for a lay-up attempt Saturday during the Golden Beavers' 52-33 win over Cudahy in the Division 2 state championship game at the Resch Center in Green Bay.

Tara Stauffacher, a 5-foot-11 junior wing from Beaver Dam, has committed to the Badgers.

Stauffacher averaged 11.4 points last season to help lead Beaver Dam (28-0) to the WIAA Division 2 state championship.

She chose UW over UW-Green Bay, UW-Milwaukee and others, she said. Stauffacher is the first player to commit for the 2019 class and is coach Jonathan Tsipis’ first scholarship recruit from Wisconsin.
