(Wednesday, November 18; Sioux Center, Iowa) Mia Gamet, a senior at Sergeant Bluff-Luton High School (Iowa), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender volleyball program.
“Mia has had an incredible high school and club volleyball career. What impressed me early on in the recruiting process with her was her humility and eagerness to learn and grow in the game. This growth process has been enhanced by many coaches in her past including Renee Winkel, Noel Herbst, and Kali Angerman. We are excited for Mia joining our campus community and continuing to grow in her walk with the Lord and living out The Defender Way,” said Dordt coach Chad Hanson.
Gamet was a three-yar starter for the Warriors as libero and averaged 4.2 digs per set over her career and totaled 1,008 digs. She was part of a state championship winning team in 2019, a semifinalist in 2018, a runner-up in 2017 and a quarterfinalist in 2020. Gamet is listed as a 5-6 libero.
Gamet was named to the 2020 Class 4A all-state and all-district first-teams and was chosen to the Iowa Senior All-Star team. She also claimed all-state honorable mention honors in 2019 and was a second-team all-conference member in both 2018 and 2019 before being a first-team selection in 2020.
“I chose to attend Dordt University because of the strong spiritual atmosphere which I will feel will only strengthen my relationship with God. From day one the volleyball program and Coach Hanson have made me feel welcome and have been very supportive to myself and my family. I look forward to growing in my faith and my academics as well as striving to be a great asset for my team,” said Gamet.
Mia is the daughter of Chasity Gaines. She plans to study Psychology at Dordt.
