(Friday, January 18; Sioux Center, Iowa) Michael Den Herder, a senior at Western Christian High School (Iowa), has announced his intention to attend Dordt College and join the Defender basketball program.

"We are very pleased to have Michael join our program. He comes to Dordt College having been well-coached at Western Christian and knows what it means to play very hard.
