Michel commits to Denver

Summit senior forward Maiya Michel has become the third SkyHawk girls basketball player in the last two seasons to commit to a Division I college, verbally committed to the University of Denver after an official visit to the school a couple weeks ago.

Michel, who averaged 11.2 points and 8.0 rebounds per game last year, joins Meghin Williams (Nebraska) and Adrienne Thomas (Arizona State) as Summit Division I basketball players.

“I’m definitely spoiled,” Summit coach Alexis Barile said. “I came into this school and these type of players are here for me. It’s a great thing to have as a coach.”
