"Amber is a well-rounded young lady who possesses a strong commitment to her academics and athletics," commented Jost. Tso was also a four-year member of the cross country team and 6 year member in rodeo. "Amber is a talented student-athlete who experienced leading her team to a state championship this past season. We will look for Amber to bring that championship mentality and attitude to our program next season," continued Jost.
Tso will enter Northern as a true freshman and is currently undecided on a major.
