Monahan signs with Drake

Glencoe-Silver Lake senior Maddie Monahan, who holds the career scoring record for the Panther girls’ basketball team, committed herself last week to attending Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and playing collegiate hoops for the Bulldogs.
“After visiting there a couple of times, I realized (Drake) was the place for me,” Monahan said. 
Monahan took advantage of the NCAA early signing period and put pen to paper in a ceremony at the GSL media center on Wednesday, Nov. 9. 
While Monahan had also been recruited by Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as North Dakota State University in Fargo, she said that Drake was the best fit.
“The coaches are very nice and incredible at what they do,” she said. “The team seems to have this great sisterhood and I want to be a part of that.”
