Van Buren High School girls basketball star Parise Rossignol has signed a National Letter of Intent to play the sport at the University of Maine and plans to attend the school next fall, but a clerical error made by UMaine on her paperwork has delayed her acceptance, according to Laura Reed, UMaine’s sports information director.

UMaine announced Thursday that Rossignol and two other recruits, Kirsten Johnson of San Diego and Janessa Fauntroy of Gaithersburg, Md., had signed their NLIs, but the release was later amended to not include Rossignol because of the paperwork issue.

Rossignol, a 5-foot-8 guard, has compiled 1,847 points in three seasons at Van Buren and is a three-time BDN All-Maine selection.

Johnson is a 6-2 forward and Fauntroy is a 6-0 small forward.

“I don’t see this as anything major,” said Maine interim athletic director Seth Woodcock. “It was a mistake on our end and we’re working on it as we speak. There will be a speedy resolution.”
