Rebekah Vandijk

The athlete is proving herself to be one for the history books

Rebekah VanDijk has established herself as one of the greatest Lady Mavericks in the history of women's basketball at UTA, accumulating the records on a weekly basis across both UTA and the Sun Belt Conference.

VanDijk became the 18th player in UTA history to score more than 1,000 points. She is a two-time selection to the conference's All-Conference first team and the 2016-17 SBC Preseason Player of the Year. At the close of the season, she was third in the conference for scoring and rebounding—and the lone player in the conference to be in the top three in both categories.

"I am so proud of her and everything that she has accomplished," says Krista Gerlich, head coach for women's basketball. "What she has done in three years has been incredible. She will go down in the record books as one of our all-time greats and, luckily for us, she is not done and will continue to lead us."
