Kyley Elmblad (women’s basketball – Ripon College)

  • Why Kyley Chose Ripon College“I chose Ripon College because of the opportunities provided both academically and athletically. Ripon allows me to pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering while continuing my basketball career. The tradition, community support, success of the program, and teacher involvement at Ripon is beyond none other. Throughout the recruiting process both the team and coaching staff welcomed me. Within one visit, Coach Lauren was able to explain to both my parents and I, all of my strengths and weaknesses, and what I could bring to the team. After the meeting it was pretty clear that both the team’s goals and mine aligned. Without my parents and coaches supporting me and helping me strive to be the best I can be, I wouldn’t be fulfilling my dream of playing basketball in college. In conclusion I am thankful for every person who has helped me throughout my journey. I am excited to become a Red Hawk and continue growing as both a person and player.”

Ian Kangas (cycling – King University)

  • Why Ian Chose King University“I chose King University for many reasons. First, being the small school feel. With King having a smaller campus and student body, I won’t feel overwhelmed by the number of people I’ll be around. The cycling coaches at King, Coach Sparks and Coach Erin, saw my passion for the sport of cycling through my social media and reached out. After meeting with them and being offered a roster spot, I was told I’d be able to participate from day one, meaning I’d have my dream of racing bikes collegiately come true. Also, the cycling team has a strong bond and is close knitted as a family would be. I am very excited to move south and be part of King’s cycling team, reaching the next level in my cycling career.”

 

Nick Pantti (baseball – Lakeland University)

  • Why Nick Chose Lakeland University“I chose Lakeland University because the people and places on campus made it feel like I was already a great fit and already at home. Lakeland provides me with everything I’m looking for educationally and athletically. Continuing my baseball career at the college level is something I have wanted to do since I was a little kid. In addition to playing baseball I look forward to furthering my education, hopefully leading to a job through their amazing Sports Management and Leadership program. Overall, Lakeland will be a fresh start for me and I look forward to seeing what I can make of the opportunity I’ve been given and where it takes me. Thank you to my parents, coaches and teammates who have all supported me during this process and made it possible for me in the end.”                                                                                                                                                               

Isaac Sarles (baseball – St. Norbert College)

  • Why Isaac Chose St. Norbert College:  I chose St. Norbert College because of the beautiful school and thriving athletic program. I’ve always had an interest in attending St. Norbert while also having the goal of continuing my baseball career at the school. When I went to the campus visit, I knew that was where I wanted to spend the next four years. Along with the athletic aspect of college, I was very pleased with the professors and their willingness to help. This is a dream come true and I would like to thank my parents and coaches, teammates and the Marquette Baseball family who have helped me along the way to be able to achieve this opportunity. Go Green Knights!”
