Aana verbally committed to Duke University, to join the Blue Devils for their 2005 class. Aana's mom, Michelle, let us know of the great news...
Just wanted to say thank-you for a great experience with club ball. Aana grew a lot under Amber and really enjoyed playing with all the girls. Aana being with New Wave also helped tremendously with recruiters watching her play with a quality support team at practice and at tournament. Many thanks again for the opportunity.
