St. Francis’ Colleen Hegewald Signs With Hope College Basketball

Traverse City St. Francis senior Colleen Hegewald will continue playing basketball at Hope College next year.

Hegewald had plenty of success with the Gladiators in her four years, including earning Div. 3 All-State Honorable Mention honors this season.

She joins a program which has had plenty of success of its own in Hope College. The Flying Dutch had a school record 61-game winning streak snapped this past regular season and won the D-III National Championship for the third time.

“I’m just really excited to be able to go and play at the collegiate level and be part of such a good program,” Hegewald said. “They won the national championship this past year, so I’m just really excited.”

Hegewald joins McBain NMC’s Megan Bennett and Lake City’s Olivia Bellows as members of the Hope women’s basketball team from Northern Michigan.
