Dietz will be a Marauder

Beach girls basketball coach Bob Waldal said Thursday night that his all-state first team forward is heading to the University of Mary next season.

Senior Brittney Dietz averaged 19 points and 6 rebounds a game last season to lead the Buccaneers to the Class B state title and an undefeated season. She has given a verbal commitment to the Marauders.

Waldal said U-Mary head coach Fred Fridley, a Watford City native, pushed hard for Dietz. After a team camp this summer, Waldal said Fridley told him he wanted to lock Dietz down.

“I’m going to sign her, I’m going to give her the best one (scholarship) we’ve got,” Waldal said, recalling what Fridley told him.

High school basketball players can sign NCAA National Letters of Intent on Wednesday.
