NEBRASKA CITY – Snezhe Serafimoska signed Monday to play basketball at Duquesne University surrounded by her algebra class, family and friends.
The 18-year-old from Macedonia has played basketball for the Pioneers since her sophomore year and also plays for the Cornhusker Shooting Stars.
Serafimoska: “I’m trying to get to grow as a basketball player and be as much help as I can to my basketball team, my new basketball family.”
She said Nebraska has a competitive atmosphere for girls basketball, noting a hard work ethic.
She said she is glad she came here.
Serafimoska: “I learned how to be a team player, more. I also learned how to be more patient as a player, how to communicate on the court and how to be a leader.”
Her algebra class also learned from her, even the proper pronunciation of her name.
Duquesne had four players named pre-season all conference.
The singing was attended by her host father and mother, Jeff and Tosha Edwards, as well as sisters Britnie Edwards, Alissa Edwards and Kaelea Saulsberry. Her brother-in-law John Saulsberry, family friend Kristijan Gavrilovski and friend Alyssa Merone, also attended.
