Doyle Drafted to Fever

Congratulations go out to Benet Academy graduate Kathleen Doyle for a historic achievement on Friday night. The former Ms. Illinois Basketball was selected as the 14th pick in the WNBA Draft by the Indiana Fever. After leading the Redwings to back-to-back state championships in 2015 and 2016, Doyle played four years at the University of Iowa and was named Big Ten Player of the Year earlier this season. Doyle is the first Benet alum to be drafted by the WNBA and is the first with local ties since Neuqua Valley grad Lyndsey Wisdom-Hylton in 2009.
