Kreiner Adds Post Daron Mainville

| Basketball (W)
Women’s basketball coach Jon Kreiner has added another post to patrol the paint this season, with the addition of Daron Mainville, of Moose Lake, Minnesota.


“We’re excited Daron Mainville is attending Lakehead University and playing for the Thunderwolves,” says Kreiner. “Daron has had a stellar career with both the Alaska Nanooks and Anoka Ramsey. Daron brings great ability and experience, can score inside and out and is a huge presence on both ends of the court.”

The 6’2″ forward began her post secondary career with the U Alaska Nanooks, in Fairbanks, Alaska in 2014-15. Her freshman year highlight at the Division II school was a 22-point, 10-rebound effort versus U Northwest Nazarene.

Says Daron, “I am thankful to have the opportunity to continue my basketball career, and for my mother, who has always pushed me to be better. I’m super thankful for all the coaches during my journey, and am beyond excited to play for coach Kreiner and his staff.”

Mainville adds for emphasis, “I love the Thunder Bay community, and Lakehead is a great university to further my education. Bring it on!”

Daron Mainville is the 5th recruit to join the women’s basketball team this year, and arrives via Anoka-Ramsey Community College with fellow recruit, Za’Keea Sa’eed-El, who committed earlier this year.
