The Chicago Sky has signed guard Sharnee' Zoll to a contract for 2013, head coach and general manager Pokey Chatman announced Monday.

"Sharnee' brings great energy and pace to the court, along with the necessary poise," Chatman said. "She will add to an already exciting guard tandem of Courtney Vandersloot and Epiphanny Prince. What I like the most is her tremendous fire and passion to improve, not only herself but also every player around her."

Zoll, 26, was a standout at the University of Virginia completing her four years as the Atlantic Coast Conference's career leader in assists (785), surpassing WNBA legend and former UVA player Dawn Staley's previous mark of 729. Zoll was selected by the Los Angeles Sparks in the third round, 29th overall, of the 2008 WNBA Draft. Zoll was also a member of the gold medal winning USA Basketball team at the 2005 FIBA U19 World Championships.

Zoll played in six games as a rookie with the Minnesota Lynx and was signed by the Los Angeles Sparks as a free agent in 2012. Sharnee' participated in two preseason games with the Sparks, but an injury forced her to miss the 2012 WNBA season.

Zoll, has recently returned to her Polish Club CCC Polkowice where she starts alongside WNBA star Nnemkadi Ogwumike. CCC Polkowice currently leads the 2013 Polish League with a 17-1 record and will also begin the EuroLeague playoffs on Tuesday.
