Nanook Women's Basketball team officially welcomes newest recruits
The Alaska Nanook Women's Basketball team officially announced two new additions last night.
We already know one of them, who will be coming from right here in Fairbanks.
Lathrop's Olivia Kraska signed her National Letter of Intent earlier this month to play for her hometown university in the fall.
The former Lathrop Malemute earned the Wendy's Heisman Scholar-athlete scholarship for next season and she will be majoring in psychology when she arrives on campus.
Joining Kraska will be Samaiyah Tolliver.
Tolliver will be joining the Nanooks from Seattle Washington, where she played for the Garfield High School Bulldogs.
Tolliver had a successful career for the bulldogs, including an incredible senior campaign.
Her senior year she averaged 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists per game.
She served as team captain, leading the Bulldogs to a 23-4 overall record and a perfect 16-0 conference mark.
She was first team all-conference her senior year.
Tolliver will be majoring in Business Administration in the fall.
These are the second and third recruits to sign to play under head coach Kerri Nakamoto next season, joining Kotzebue's Alanna Conwell in the 2019 recruiting class.
