Abby Iverson Letter of Intent

Dakota College of Bottineau Coach Wayne Johnson’s comments:

“We really believe this is a big signing for the Ladyjacks.  We feel that Abby will add a dimension to our team that will complement our returners and new recruits.  She has been a very efficient offensive player throughout her high school career and we look for that to continue.  Abby can hit the shot and distribute the ball to her teammates.   She appears to be perfect fit for our offensive game.  Abby also seems to be a solid two-way player.  She rebounds the ball and defends.  We expect her to be a key component in our battle for a Region XIII title.

Abby is not only a good athlete but also an excellent student with solid core values.  She brings a strong work ethic both on and off the court.  Abby will be a great representative of DCB and the Ladyjacks basketball program.”
