Detroit Lakes senior captain Shelby Busker announced on National Signing Day Wednesday her commitment to attend and play golf at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Indiana.
Busker joins her sister Sydney, who was a captain and four-year standout at St. Catherine's University in St. Paul, in playing golf at the collegiate level.
Busker also adds to a list of former Lakers at the next level that includes recent NDSU graduates Natalie Roth and Trisa Hutchinson, Bison freshman Maddie Herzog, Nebraska senior Kate Smith and UND junior Abby Schramel.
Shelby will lead the Lakers a final time this spring as Detroit Lakes transitions from dominating Class AA to a jump up to Class AAA. She was the Section 8AA medalist as DL cruised to the team title by 91 strokes.
The Lakers continued a perfect streak of reaching the podium in every state meet with a third place finish in AA last June. Busker reached the podium in eighth place, along with teammate Anna Cihak in third place overall.
