Basketball Adds Albrecht

(Friday, November 15; Sioux Center, Iowa) Hillary Albrecht, a senior at Howard High School (South Dakota), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender women's basketball program.

"Hilary is a great addition to our 2020 class!  She is a fantastic student and leader.  Hilary has an awesome perspective on life serving God first.  We are looking forward to the impact Hilary will have on Dordt’s campus community!" said Dordt basketball coach Bill Harmsen.

Albrecht has scored 1,292 career points entering her senior season with 490 career rebounds and 271 steals.  She's a two-time all-state selection earning second-team honors in 2018 and third-team honors in 2019.  She's been an all-Cornbelt Conference selection three times and has helped Howard to a district runner-up finish in 2017 and a region runner-up finish in 2018.  Albrecht has been an Academic All-State pick each season 2016-19.

"I chose Dordt University because of the high quality it hold academically and athletically and because of the community it is surrounded by.  Dordt has a beautiful campus with staff members that want their students to succeed. I admire how the students are learning their material while they are strengthening their relationships with Christ. Another part of Dordt that helped me decide that I was going to commit is the basketball program and the coaching staff that is caring and wants to watch their athletes succeed on and off the court," said Albrecht.

Hilary is the daughter of Jon and Rhona Albrecht of Howard, South Dakota.
