Vanweerdhuizen makes a difference for women's basketball

Thursday, March 8, 2012


Corban women's basketball coach Terry Williams won't say he expected freshman Tara Vanweerdhuizen to instantly become one of the best centers in school history while recruiting her.

But he also won't say he didn't.

"I hate to say we knew it, but we sort of did," Williams said.

What the Warriors' staff knew was the Spokane, Wash., native would come in and immediately be a force in her first collegiate season.

So far Vanweerdhuizen has set the school single-season blocks record and is third on the career list, helping the No. 10 Warriors to qualify for this week's NAIA Division II national tournament.
