    Carley Kueter (Brandon Valley) signs with Wolves!

    The Northern State women’s basketball program has announced the addition of seven student-athletes that have signed National Letters of Intent for the 2015-16 season. Anika Fredrick of Buffalo, Minn.,  Jaycie Gerding of Lino Lakes, Minn., Taylor Kane of Grand Rapids, Minn., Makenzie Murtha of Maple Grove, Minn., Rachael Platt of Eden Prairie, Minn., Carley Kueter of Brandon, S.D. and Tiernee Schrank of Reedsburg, Wisc., have all committed to the Wolves for next season.

    Fredrick is a 6-foot-1 all-conference, all-academic center who led her team in scoring and rebounding last season. She averaged 11 points and six rebounds per game as a junior for Buffalo High School. Fredrick played AAU ball for the Minnesota Comets.

    Gerding is a 5-foot-10 guard for Centennial High School, where two current Wolves, Paige Waytashek and Jill Conrad, graduated high school from and were teammates with Jaycie. As a junior, Jaycie shot 47 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the arc. She is a four-year varsity letter winner, received the team’s best defense award and helped her team to a state tournament appearance. Jaycie played AAU basketball for the Minnesota Fury Elite.

    Kane is an all-conference, all-state honorable mention, 6-foot forward who averaged 17 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and two assists per game as a junior. She was ranked in the top-40 seniors in Minnesota and was also the fifth-best rebounder in the state. Kane played AAU ball for the Minnesota Stars.

    Murtha is an all-conference, 5-foot-11 guard who averaged 11 points and five rebounds her junior season. As a freshman she helped her team win a state championship, and as a sophomore she helped lead her team back to a state tournament appearance, taking 3rd place. She is also a three-year letter winner in track. Murtha played AAU ball for the Metro Stars. Her uncle, Bill Murtha, is an NSU football alum.

    Platt is a dual-sport basketball and track athlete for Eden Prairie High School. A 6-foot-1 center, Platt has been a three-year varsity letter winner who averaged six points and seven rebounds as a junior, which helped lead her team to 3rd-place finish at the state tournament. Tallying up over 200 rebounds last season made her the leading rebounder in the conference. Platt played AAU ball for the Minnesota Comets with Fredrick.

    Kueter is a 5-foot-11 forward who averaged 10 points and six boards per game her junior year. She played AAU ball for the Dakota Blue Devils and made the All-tournament Team at the US Junior National Tournament in Las Vegas in 2013. Kueter is not only a three-year varsity letter winner and an all-conference honorable mention player in basketball, but she is also a three-year varsity letter winner in soccer for Brandon-Valley.

    Schrank is a 5-foot-10 all-conference forward who averaged 13 points and 12 rebounds per game as a junior. She shot 45 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range. Schrank is also an outstanding soccer player at goalie for Reedsburg High School. She had 131 saves and only allowed 15 goals last season.






    “We are very excited to have this group of student-athletes attending Northern State next year and getting them involved in our basketball program,” said Head Coach Curt Fredrickson.






    “We are graduating six great seniors and hopefully these new athletes can step in soon and fill the void left by our seniors.”
