The Cal State Stanislaus women’s basketball team received a special package last week.
The Warriors announced the signing of twin sisters Erin and Lauren Godde of Argonaut High of Jackson for the 2010-11 fall season. The sisters are in the middle of their final prep girls basketball season with the Mustangs.
The girls have already accomplished plenty at Argonaut. Both are girls basketball and volleyball standouts, highlighted by the duo leading the Mustangs to the Mother Lode League girls basketball championship last winter.
Lauren, a forward, used her 6-foot-1 frame to lead the MLL in scoring and rebounding last season, averaging 18.7 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. She also collected 61 assists, 65 blocks and 65 steals during her junior season campaign.
Erin was also effective as a 6-foot forward, as she was named a first-team all-league selection by averaging 7.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game with 75 assists and 35 steals.
Both athletes are three-time honor roll recipients.
As for this year’s Warriors, they picked up their first regular-season win after beating Central Washington 69-59 on Saturday at the Thanksgiving Classic hosted by Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho.
Stanislaus is now 1-1 this season, with the Warriors opening the California Collegiate Athletic Association schedule at 5:30 p.m. on Friday at Cal State Monterey Bay in Seaside.

Stanislaus men ready for league opener
With another productive night by Matt Ibewiro and a 14-point showing from Dwight Jones, the Cal State Stanislaus men’s basketball team earned a come-from-behind 71-61 win over Menlo College at the Lamont Ramsey Classic in Atherton on Sunday.
The victory gives the Warriors a perfect 4-0 mark and a lot of confidence under first-year coach Larry Reynolds heading into the CCAA opener at Cal State Monterey Bay at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
That game will be followed by a matchup at San Francisco State at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Ibewiro, one of less than a handful of returners from last season, was once again a solid contributor, finishing with 13 points and seven rebounds. Teammate Chad Johnson added 12 points.
