LINDSBORG — Bethany College women’s basketball coach Brett Morehouse continues to stockpile talent in a bid to turn around the Swedes’ fortunes.
Melanie D'Amour from Calhan, Colo., is the latest addition to the Swedes.
She is a 5-10 shooting guard from Ellicott High School in Ellicott, Colo. She competed in basketball, volleyball, as well as track and field.
She scored 9.3 points per game, grabbed 4.8 rebounds per game, recorded a total of 238 steals, 113 assists and 89 blocks.
"Melanie is a great pickup for our program and for our college in general,” Morehouse said. “She is an excellent student and a fierce competitor on the basketball court. Mel has great size and length for a guard along with the ability to shoot from long range. Despite her many accomplishments at the high school level, we see a player who still has a lot of room to develop as a basketball player. Mel is hungry to get to work this offseason and we are confident that she will be ready to come in and compete for minutes this fall."
She is the daughter of Jeri and Christopher D'Amour. She has a 3.63 high school grade point average and plans to major in athletic training. Her sister, Ashley, is a senior volleyball player at Bethany.
