Senior Spotlight: Cadillac’s Bryant Finds New Home at Davenport

MISportsNow is putting the spotlight on northern Michigan high school senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Cadillac senior Makenna Bryant recently concluded an impressive prep basketball career that saw her overcome injuries throughout her sophomore through senior campaigns.

A multi-sport athlete for the Vikings, Bryant earned Associated Press and Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan Division 2 all-state honors as a senior while battling through a knee injury and leading Cadillac to a 23-win season and a spot in a Division 2 regional final.

Now Bryant has found a new home to continue her basketball career as she’ll head to Davenport University in the fall.

Receiving the offer from Davenport was a relief for Bryant and affords her the opportunity to compete against her older sister, Taylor, a rising senior guard on Lake Superior State’s team. Both schools are members of the same division in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

“It was kind of like, ‘Thank, God.’ Like, I have a home for the next year,” Bryant said. “I was so worried about not getting the opportunity. I got looks from smaller colleges, but I wasn’t really interested in going there. I was so happy.”
