Samantha Raak, a 5-10 forward from Potter’s House Christian, has signed to play basketball for the Grace Bible College Lady Tigers. Sam was a 4 year varsity player for the Pumas where she patrolled the high post area on her way to earning team MVP and an All-Conference mention in the 2011-12 season for Coach Mike Wood. Sam is a solid rebounder and possesses a nice mid-range shot.
Sam wanted to point out some important people in her life that have given her guidance and helped to keep her on the narrow path. Mike Wood was her coach through her junior season and was integral in Sam’s life and basketball development. Jacque Bouma has been Sam’s mentor and treated her as her own daughter to help her get through some tough times and to help her become a stronger Christian.
“We are very happy to have Samantha coming in to the program,” Coach Renzema commented. “She has good size and strength and will provide depth at the post for us going forward.”
