"Jill will help fill the void of graduating senior post player, Sam Flietstra. Jill and 6-3 post player, Jill Hendrickson, have the potential to be a formidable force in the paint for the Golden Eagles. She has a knack for getting rebounds and she has the potential to be a potent scorer. I am excited to see the impact she will have on this team next year and in her career."
