WASECA — Bluejays Rachel Breck and Gus Boyer signed letters of commitment last week to further extend their athletic careers at the collegiate level.
The National Signing Day event took place in the performing arts center at Waseca High at 10 a.m. where Breck committed to Iowa Lakes Community College to play both volleyball and basketball.
“I chose Iowa Lakes for a variety of reasons. When I first visited the campus it had a very small town feeling like home,” Breck said. “Iowa Lakes has what I am looking for to further my education after high school and many more opportunities as well. I’m looking forward to pushing my limits and developing my skills more and more on the volleyball and basketball court.”
Senior Gus Boyer committed to Minnesota Duluth where she will hit the hardwood and continue her basketball career.
“I am most looking forward to improving my skill and constantly being challenged by all components of the game. Over the years I have become a much more confident person and I think I owe a lot of that growth to the game and my teammates and coaches,” Boyer said.
Although they are heading out next year the Waseca community still gets to enjoy one more season of watching both girls play as the basketball season gets underway.
“I think what she has grown most in is her understanding in what it means to be a leader. She has always been very tenacious, assertive and very in love with the sport of basketball,” Audra Boyer said. “The thing that I’m most proud of is that she has recognized what it means to be a good person.”
Be sure to catch Breck and Boyer playing in their first home basketball game Saturday, Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. against Willmar.
