Marquette's Ledy signs NLI to play for Wildcats

MARQUETTE — Redettes basketball player Terese Ledy signed her National Letter of Intent for the Northern Michigan women’s basketball team. She said a lot of factors went into her decision.

“I just really like the program. They have a really good digital cinema program, which is what I want to go into. So they have that and I’ve been watching Northern Michigan play since I’ve grown up and it just seems cool to play for a team that I’ve seen all my life,” Ledy said.

The 5–11 forward accomplished a lot in her senior year with the Redettes, being named to the All U.P. First Team, as well as the Great Northern Conference Player of the Year.

“She took the leadership role right from the get go with her play, with her practice habits, with the amount time she’s in the gym just making herself better. It’s not really in her personality to be vocal and getting on kids, but her leading by example and getting her teammates to understand what they needed to do if we wanted to be as good of a team as we could be, I thought she did a great job of that,” head coach Ben Smith said.

“I’m really proud that I’ve never lost a game in this gym and I’m really happy that I’m able to say that going out of my season here,” Ledy said.

Ledy is joining a Wildcats team that finished last year with a 13–16 record, 12–10 within the conference.
