"We are very happy to announce that Ashley Rasmussen will be joining our program in the fall. Ashley is another member of our 2014 recruiting class who played for a highly successful prep basketball program," Morehouse said. "Coming from a large school like Horizon, she understands what it means to compete and what it takes to earn minutes on the court. We look forward to working with Ashley and helping her to continue her development as a student athlete here at Bethany College."
Rasmussen is the daughter of David and Susan Rasmussen. She plans to major in Athletic Training while studying at Bethany College.
