We're proud to share that Michael Buckmire '17 has been named to the Duke University Basketball squad.
In "Duke Basketball: Blue Devils Quietly Added Eighth Player to Freshman Class," Fansided reports that Mike was posted to the team in an "under-the-radar move adding a talented walk-on point guard."
GFS Director of Athletics Katie Bergstrom-Mark says, "Mike was a true GFS Athlete—academic and athletic. He is a hard-worker, an enthusiastic supporter of his teammates, a great example of leadership, and passionate about improving himself every day. It was these qualities, plus his impressive talent and intellect that led to his opportunity to try out and become part of the Duke Basketball program. We will continue to watch Mike and support his growth as an athlete and person!"
Congratulations to Mike, and to GFS Basketball Coach Shawn Werdt.
