Athlete Diary: Grace Hales

I lost a lot of games at Valpo and it was frustrating. Coming off a high school career of winning four straight sectional basketball titles and four volleyball ones, I had to become used to winning. I knew when committing to Valpo it would be a growing process. I was told that I could be a part of turning a program around, and I liked the idea of that.

I knew committing to a school with a D1 program over some smaller schools wouldn’t get me as much playing time or get me to score as many points.
