California-based Backroads travel has confirmed a former star basketball player at the University of Wisconsin-Stout was among the 10 Americans who died in the crash of a charter plane in Costa Rica. Thorp native Amanda Geissler worked as a guide for Backroads. She was a standout point guard at U-W-Stout from 2003-to-2007. Several of her former teammates gathered Monday to remember her. Former assistant coach Erin Sullivan says Geissler wanted to live a full life, filled with adventure. The plane went down Sunday. The other Americans who died were part of a tour organized by the Backroads company.
