Dodd signs with VincennesApril 11, 2013
Northeast Dubois girls basketball standout Nicole Dodd signed a letter of intent Wednesday to continue her basketball career at Vincennes University.
While the vast majority of Dodd’s contact with college coaches came via the AAU circuit, Trailblazer coach Harry Meeks was the only coach to come watch Dodd play for her high school team, she said.
Dodd was an integral part of the Jeep’s run to the Class 1A state finals in 2012 as a junior, and she finished her career with 1,203 points at Northeast Dubois while helping the Jeeps extend their sectional championship streak to 11 years.
She named two major factors that played into her college decision: Vincennes is situated just an hour from Dubois, and the school encouraged her to pursue both basketball and studies in athletic training, which she hopes will lead to a continued pursuit in physical therapy when the two-year program at Vincennes is complete.
As for basketball after Vincennes, Dodd assured the Trailblazer staff has been fully supportive of her ambition to play college basketball afterward as well.
“(Vincennes is) really good at moving girls on to the next level, and that’s always been my goal. That’s what I’d like to do,” Dodd said.
“They knew I can still go on and play at another level. That’s been my goal all along.”
