Claymore Picks Dordt Hockey

(Thursday, April 7, 2022; Sioux Center, Iowa) Kasen Claymore, a senior at Aberdeen Central High School (South Dakota), has announced his intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender hockey program.

“When we talk about doing things the Defender Way, a student-athlete like Kasen Claymore is exactly who we are looking for. This young man is eager to be here, and has made tremendous efforts to be here. We are excited to add Kasen to our family for the Fall of 2022. Kasen will be a huge asset for us on and off the ice. He felt the call to make Dordt his home and he is excited to take on the challenge of doing things The Defender Way,” said hockey coach Tyler Morgan.

Claymore is a forward and had 17 goals and nine assists for the Aberdeen Cougars.

“When I got on campus I felt at home and knew right away Dordt is where I wanted to be,” said Claymore.

Kasen is the son of Karla Hall and Spike Claymore of Aberdeen, South Dakota.  He plans to study business at Dordt.
