DICKINSON, N.D. — Former Huntley Project High School standout Keera Stookey recorded her 1,000th career assist at Dickinson (N.D.) State on Saturday.
Stookey was a four-year starter at Huntley Project, helping the Red Devils to Class B state championships in 2012 and 2013 and runner-up trophies in 2014 and 2015.
The 5-foot-5 junior setter is in her third season at Dickinson State and hit the milestone mark in the Blue Hawks’ four-set win over Waldorf University at Forest City, Iowa. She had 24 assists to help DSU to the 25-21, 17-25, 25-21, 25-18 win. For her career, Stookey now has 1,013 assists, recording 460 as a freshman in 2016, 321 last year as a sophomore and 232 so far this season, which is just past its midway point.
DSU is 3-14 overall and 1-4 in the North Star Athletic Association. The win over Waldorf was DSU’s first conference win of the season.
The Blue Hawks return to action on Oct. 5, traveling to Presentation College in Aberdeen, S.D.
