Van Wert High School senior forward Alex Morrow has verbally committed to play her college basketball at NCAA Division II Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

LSSU is a member of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, one of the premier Division II basketball conferences in the nation.

The 6-1 Morrow was the Lady Cougars’ leading scorer and rebounder for the past two years, scoring an average of 12 points and grabbing 9 rebounds per game this past season in leading the Van Wert girls to a 13-9 record.

Morrow chose LSSU due to its rich women’s basketball tradition and an outstanding nursing program.

She is the daughter of Diana and Mike Morrow of Van Wert, and the granddaughter of Kalida boys’ basketball coaching legend Dick Kortokrax.
