2008-09 - Freshman

Wampler became one of just five freshmen in New Mexico State history to be named to an all-freshman team after earning 2009 WAC All-Freshman team honors. She also became just the fourth Aggie freshman to ever lead the team in rebounding, as she finished with 155 total rebounds for 5.0 rebounds per game. Wampler scored in double figures nine times in 2008-09, was NM State's leading scorer in five games and led the team in rebounding eight different times. She ranked No. 20 in the WAC in rebounding and led New Mexico State with 63 offensive rebounds. Wampler started in 27 games on the year and played in every single contest for the Aggies. She was the fourth-leading scorer on the team, averaging 7.2 points per game and she led NM State with her 40.7 field goal percentage. Wampler's 29 steals were the second most on the team and she added 38 assists and 10 blocked shots in her rookie campaign. In conference games only, Wampler finished seventh in the league by shooting 44.7 percent from the field and she averaged 8.5 points in the 16 league games, which was good for 25th in the WAC. In her first-ever WAC game at Utah State, Jan. 8, Wampler set a career-high with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting and she had six rebounds, four of which came on the offensive end. In the season-opening game against UC Irvine, Nov. 14, Wampler shined right off the opening tip as she scored 13 points and had nine rebounds. Those nine boards were a season-high that she matched again, Feb. 8, vs. Idaho. She had two games with four steals as a freshman as well as two, four-assist games. She averaged 23.6 minutes per game on the year, which was the fourth highest on the team.
