One of the standouts in the mid-1980s in women's basketball, she is one of three NDSU players to finish career with 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. She is second in career rebounding with 1,079 and No. 11 in career scoring with 1,326 points, and is the all-time leader in blocked shots at NDSU with 222.

She was NCAA regional tournament MVP against Minnesota State-Mankato in 1986 after scoring 13 points, grabbing eight rebounds and blocking five shots in the 67-62 win over the Mavericks.

She was a three-time NCC Player of the Week over her career. An honorable mention All-North Central Conference pick in 1987, she consistently ranked among the NCAA leaders in rebounding and had a career-high 20 rebounds vs. Northern Michigan in 1985-86.

She was a member of NDSU’s first two NCAA Division II tournament squads including the national runner-up squad in 1986. The 1987 Bison team won the first NCC women’s basketball title in the program’s history. She was a member of the NDSU team that also started a string of 20-win seasons in 1985-86, compiling a 24-9 mark that was part of a streak that was snapped at 16 in 2001-02.

She scored in double digits all four seasons (10.6 ppg in 1983-84, 11.9 ppg in 1984-85, 10.7 ppg in 1985-86, and 12.8 ppg in 1986-87). Stamp averaged 11.4 ppg over her career.

She moved into starting role in the seventh game of her freshman year and never moved. She blocked 85 shots in 1986-87 to set NDSU single-season record, and led the NCC in blocked shots (2.4 bpg) in 1986-87, the year she swatted away a school-record seven shots against both South Dakota and Winona State. She currently ranks in the top 10 in two other categories including eighth in field goals made (604) and 10th in field-goal percentage (.484).

Stamp is a native of Madison, Minn., who earned 11 varsity letters (five in basketball, four in volleyball and two in track) at Madison High School.  She was an all-state performer in basketball and earned all-conference honors in volleyball and basketball.

After college, she worked as a secretary for Auxiliary Services at Concordia College, was a church secretary for two years at St. Matthew’s in Evanston, Ill., and is currently a stay-at-home mom while continuing to be active in her church after returning to Minnesota. She is the traveling director for the Apple Valley (Minn.) seventh- and eighth-grade girls' basketball team.
