McBain NMC’s Megan Bennett Signs with Hope College for Basketball
MCBAIN – McBain Northern Michigan Christian senior Megan Bennett made her college commitment official late last month, singing with Hope College for basketball.
The 6-foot-2 all-state post-player helped lead the Comets to a 17-5 record, a back-to-back district championship in Div. 4 and a trip to the regional finals this past season.
Her aunt Linda Ebels also attended Hope 20 years ago after graduating from NMC in 2003.
“Well, the family’s history definitely helped, I would say. But just the atmosphere when I walked on the campus and how I was greeted. The chemistry I already had with the team. I went out to lunch with them once and we just clicked so easily. I’ll be playing with a bunch of great players and I’m really, really excited,” said Bennett.
Bennett joins a dominant women’s basketball program at Hope which just won the 2022 Div. III NCAA National Championship in January.
