Brooke Schraner was sure about her commitment, "I am very excited to become a Lady Buc. I signed with Dawson because I had grown up playing and watching ball, and I've wanted to play at the college level for a while now, and DCC is a very good junior college. I have had friends attend there, and they loved it!"
Belt High School Head Girl's Basketball Coach Jeff Graham said, "Brooke has worked to become an excellent all-around player. Brooke has a very high ceiling as a player and I can't wait to watch her continue to grow at DCC. She is the perfect fit for Coach Lagmay's program."
Coach Lagmay expressed his excitement as well, "Coach Graham and Belt run a quality, tough, hard-nosed program. They work hard! Brooke has shown her ability to be comfortable in that type of atmosphere, and she will definitely fit in at Dawson where the expectation is to always play tough and never back down. I'm very eager to get her on campus and develop her into a feared opponent."
