Byrum, Thompson to play basketball for Silver Lake College

Posted on May 29 2014

Silver Lake College announced that Danielle Byrum of Sheboygan Lutheran High School and Daisneekqua Thompson of Milwaukee Juneau/Morse/Marshall High School signed letters of intent to attend SLC and play for the women’s basketball team.

“I am very excited that Danielle will be a Lady Laker next season,” said Mike Flentje, SLC’s athletic director and women’s basketball coach. “The coaching staff and I had the opportunity to watch Danielle play several times this past season. She has an excellent outside shot and is a great ball handler. Her shot will give us another weapon on the outside, which will help loosen up the defense and will make out inside game even stronger. Danielle will make an immediate impact on the team next season.”

Talking about Thompson, Flentje said, “Daisneekqua is an excellent student-athlete who will play in the post position for us next season. She will bring enthusiasm and athleticism to our team. Daisneekqua was the leading scorer and captain of her team last season, which finished the season 13 -1. She fits in extremely well in how we like to play our game. I sincerely believe that she will make an impact on our team.  She expressed her excitement to be on our team and will contribute any way she can to improve our record this next season.”
