Claire Vekich

School: Grand Rapids/Greenway
Position: Forward
Year: Senior

The Coleraine native was a finalist for the Ms. Baden Volleyball award this fall as she led Greenway to a 12-0 record before the season was shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Vekich’s athleticism is such there’s a good chance she could earn Ms. Hockey finalist status this winter as well. The Bemidji State commit scored 25 goals in 25 games last season and finished with a team-best 47 points — numbers that are likely to improve as she continues to play alongside emerging star Mercury Bischoff (31 points last season as a seventh-grader).
