IU-East snags 3 locals for women's team

ANDERSON, Ind. — Beginning next year, the IU-East Red Wolves are going to have a women's basketball team.

Right now the team could very likely be labeled Madison County-SE.

Da'Sha Boyd from Anderson High School, along with Mackenzie Boles and Kaitlin Dobbins from Lapel, will be on that inaugural team for coach Tiffani Selhorst.

Selhorst is spending much of her winter looking at players to populate her roster. It is taking her a bit of time to make those decisions because she is considering things beyond what takes place on the court.

"I couldn't be happier," said Selhorst. "I want to build team chemistry. It's not so much that we have all the talent in the world, though we have talented kids, but I see them as people as well. I've got players who are strong in academics and are involved in the community."

Boles is perhaps the player with whom Selhorst can find the most common ground. Boles suffered a serious injury a year ago, and some thought she might not come back or at the very least might not ever be the player she had been.

"I had a similar injury when I was a junior in high school," said Selhorst. "The schools interested in me dropped from about 10 to two. She is so tough, I am not surprised she bounced back."

Boles had no problem signing with IU-East even though the program was just starting.

"I saw this as an opportunity," said Boles. "It is a chance to be part of something really cool. When I first met Coach (Selhorst), I felt really comfortable. She is not super intimidating, but I know she's not going to let people get away with things either."
