ROCHESTER HILLS, MICH.- Rochester College signs Rikki Scherdt to play basketball in the 2017-2018 season.  

Scherdt comes to Rochester College after playing two years at Schoolcraft College. After graduating from Lincoln High School in Ypsilanti, Mich. in 2011, Scherdt continued her basketball career under head coach Kara Kinzer as a Lady Ocelot in 2014.  Scherdt was named Defensive Player of the Year at the end of the 2014-15 season.  With her outstanding defense both years she played at Schoolcraft, Scherdt was named to the All Defense Team, and in 2016 was an Honorable Mention.

Coach Wichtner on Scherdt:

"The first time I saw Rikki play I knew she would be a huge asset to this family.  Her infectious high spirited personality with her "never going to out work me" attitude is just the piece this family needed to make it complete.  Rikki is a kind of player that is going to do everything a team needs to win.  We're ecstatic to have her and the toughness she brings!"
