Aana Wherry Accepts Duke Offer

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.
