St. Ignace’s Belleville Signs with Bay College
ST. IGNACE – St. Ignace senior Jordan Belleville recently announced her commitment to continue her basketball career at Bay College next fall.
A Straits Area Conference First Team selection this season, Belleville has led the Saints to a Class C district and regional title en route to Tuesday’s state quarterfinal against Glen Lake.
Belleville is the first signee for the inaugural Bay College women’s basketball program, as the two-year institution in Escanaba announced last spring that it would begin intercollegiate play in the fall of 2017. In addition to women’s basketball, Bay College will also sponsor men’s basketball and men’s and women’s cross country.
“I chose Bay because I like the Idea of a two-year college instead of a four-year and I wanted to stay in the U.P.,” Belleville said. “Bay has so much to offer their students. Coach (Rae) Drake is working on building teams around our U.P. kids, which is great. I feel he has the drive to build a great program.”
