Women's Basketball Adds Sievers

(Tuesday, September 21; Sioux Center, Iowa) Macy Sievers, a senior at Newell-Fonda High School (Iowa), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the women’s basketball program.  

“Macy is a fantastic addition to our basketball program.  As a true point guard, Macy sees the floor well and has the ability to elevate her teammates.  She has a team first mentality and will certainly provide another dimension for us on the basketball floor!  Macy is a highly decorated high school athlete all the while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average.  Her perspective on sport, academics, friendships, and Christ’s love aligns well with the Defender Way.  We can’t wait to see the plans God has for her as she continues to maximize her talents at Dordt,” said Dordt basketball coach Bill Harmsen. 

Sievers has earned all-conference and all-state honors in volleyball, softball and basketball and averaged 13.1 points with 4.4 steals per contest last season and handed out 5.5 assists and took in 3.7 rebounds.  She’s been a part of three straight state title winning teams and is 80-1 in her high school basketball career and has claimed all-state tournament honors three times.  Sievers has scored 964 points during her career with 303 rebounds, 351 assists and 301 steals heading into her senior season. She’s listed as a 5-8 guard and was named the 2021 Storm Lake Times and Storm Lake Tribune basketball player of the year.  

“I chose Dordt University because from my first visit it felt like home. Coach Harmsen and the rest of the coaching staff as well as the players did an awesome job building a relationship with me. At Dordt I will be able to grow as a person, an athlete and as a Christian,” said Sievers. 

Macy is the daughter of John and Jami Sievers of Storm Lake, Iowa. She plans to study Elementary Education at Dordt.  

Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian college rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC), American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) and the Mid-American Collegiate Hockey Association (MACHA).
