“I would like to thank my teammates, they are very supportive and they have helped me improve my game,” Buhs said.

Some of her accomplishments in the winter of 2021, were helping her team finish the season with just one loss, and playing all year long to help her improve her game.

She said basketball has taught her to work for what she wants and never give up.

Buhs plays volleyball for the Lady Eagles as a defensive specialist. She plans to attend Indiana University Bloomington and study speech pathology.
