Indian Lake High School girls basketball standout Morgan Evilsizor will play for Heidelberg University in Tiffin next season.
Evilsizor made her future official during a signing event with her family, Indian Lake head coach Nick Tucci and her long-time Miami Valley Hawks AAU team coach Gary Thompson.
Evilsizor has been playing basketball since she was a fifth grader and she looks forward to continuing her career on the court close to home.
“I think I can contribute by being a good team player and working hard,” she said. “When I met with the basketball coach and the girls from the team, they were all excited that I was planning to go there and they were friendly and welcoming.”
Tucci worked with Evilsizor for three years and says her leadership skills will be missed.
“She developed as a basketball player, but she really developed as a mature young lady and as a leader,” he said. “I think she’s going to step into Heidelberg and she’s going to bring a lot of those skills—ball handling, shooting, defense, especially rebounding because she was one of our rebounding leaders, not just for this season, but for her career.”
Evilsizor was a First Team All CBC Selection her senior year and earned Special Mention status as a junior. She will be on a partial academic scholarship studying either physical or occupational therapy. Her coaches at Heidelberg will be Morgan Harrigan and Dan Hartsel.
Evilsizor is the daughter of Pat and Kristy Evilsizor of Lakeview.
