Brook Van Eck Nearing 500 Rebound Mark After Performance in Loss at Hope Wednesday

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

(written by Calvin sports information student assistant Derek Neice)

Basketball at Calvin has always been the trademark sport, the arena where bragging rights are won and lost and where maroon and gold are the only colors seen in the crowd.  With that kind of tradition, it is indeed an honor to be considered a leader of one of Calvin’s basketball teams.  This year that player would have to be Brook Van Eck, a senior post player who plays the game with heart every time she steps on the court.

Van Eck, a native of Lowell Michigan, helps lead a very young team this season currently ranked in the top 15 in the country. A year ago, she was named to the All-MIAA first team and was a two-time MIAA Player of the Week. Earlier this year, she was named the Most Valuable Player of the Wilmington Tip-Off Tournament and later earned a spot on the Olivet Thanksgiving Classic All-tournament team.
