The standout girls' basketball player signed to play Division 1 women's basketball at Bradley Nov. 10 at Roland-Story High School in Story City.

"Reagan is an accomplished three-sport athlete in her time here at Roland-Story and is an extremely hard worker," Roland-Story Athletic Director Brian Peterson said.  "Reagan is a great example of a student-athlete and Roland-Story is extremely proud of her as she finishes her senior year and transitions to Bradley University."
