(Wednesday, May 5; Sioux Center, Iowa) Kate Drost, a senior at Woodland Christian School (Ontario), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender basketball program.
“Kate is a long forward that has made a tremendous impact during her shortened high school career. She brings the ability to play in the paint while being able to score from the perimeter as well. Kate desires being around Christian teammates and a culture of growth to aid in her spiritual, academic, social and athletic development. We are excited to welcome Kate to campus next fall,” said Dordt basketball coach Bill Harmsen.
Drost averaged 14 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three assists per game and helped her team to a OFSAA runner-up finish in 2020 and a fourth place finish in 2019. She was an honorable mention all-state pick while playing for Triad (Oregon) in 2018. Her 2020 team finished the season with a 30-1 record and she is listed 6-0.
“I knew going into my university years I wanted to attend a school with good academics, a basketball program and a Christian atmosphere. After touring Dordt I felt it was the school that could offer me all three. Dordt felt like home and I am excited to see what the next four years will have to offer,” said Drost.
Kate is the daughter of Lawrence and Jeanie Drost of Petersburg, Ontario. She plans to study Ag-Business at Dordt.
