On the court, she is a solid ball handler with great vision. She already has so many tools and can score in a variety of ways. I think Ahdra will make an impact right away and I welcome her to our basketball family.”

“I am very excited to be attending Western Oregon next year to pursue my academic and athletic career. I chose WOU because of the comfortable environment for classes and the fun and competitiveness I found on the court,” Klingler said. “The program and coaches really stuck out to me and played a major factor in my decision. I can’t wait to play with them next year and take on my new journey as a Wolf!”
