After a 15-16 season that saw plenty of promising moments, Hastings College head women's basketball coach Carrie Hofstetter sees her vision of playing high-pace, up-and-down the court basketball coming soon.
As her mentors have told her, change won't come over night. But she feels good about the new recruits she's signed for the 2013-14 season, including former Sutton star and three-time Tribland Player of the Year Jamie Van Kirk.
Van Kirk, a junior transfer from NCAA Division 1 North Dakota State, could contribute right away at HC. A two-year starter at NDSU, the 5-foot-9 guard averaged eight points and four rebounds per game this past season.
