DUNLAP — Anna Heck, a 2013 Concord High School graduate, has signed to continue her academic and basketball careers at Holy Cross College near the University of Notre Dame.

“Anna is a solid two-way player with a lot of ability to help us this season,” said Holy Cross head coach Aimee Niespodziany. “She’s a very hard worker who will fit right in with the rest of our team. We couldn’t be more excited to have Anna join our program.”

Heck lettered in basketball all four years at Concord, was a two-time captain in her junior and senior years and closed out her career with 423 career points. At the conclusion of her senior year, Heck was named all-Northern Lakes Conference honorable mention.

In addition to basketball letters, Heck has two varsity letters in softball.

Heck joins the Saints after her most successful season for the Minutemen where she was a full-time starter and averaged a team-high 8.9 points-per-game.

“Holy Cross is getting a very talented player,” said Concord head coach Dan Ross. “Anna was a tireless worker for us this year and has only improved in her time at Concord.

“She can really shoot the ball,” continued Ross. “We were forced to play her out of position due to size this year, but I think in this system, she’s going to be a great shooter for the Saints. Her tireless work ethic and determined attitude is really going to help her at the next level. She’s a great competitor and was a real joy to coach this past season.”

Aside from athletics, Anna has participated in Potter’s Marathon to raise money for Riley’s Kids.
