EAGLE RIVER - Northland Pines' Amanda Sergent will go on to play collegiate hockey this fall.
Wednesday afternoon she made the plans official by signing with UW-Superior.
The senior forward won all-state awards this year and was a standout for the Eagles.
She told Newswatch 12 she's a little nervous about the big move, but she's looking forward to the challenge.
"I'm super excited but also very nervous at the same time because I know that it's going to be a higher level of playing and I don't really know what to expect," Sargent said. "I'm used to playing all the, time and I know I'm going to be starting from the bottom when I get there, so I'll have to work my way back up."
Sergent is ready for that challenge thanks to the advice she got from her coaches at Northland Pines.
"Coaches telling me to work my hardest and always pushing me to my limit because they know my limit. They made sure I do what I can do," said Sergent.
She chose UW-Superior for many different reasons, one of them being the feel of the campus.
"The campus is super small and it's what I'm used to," she said. "I'm not used to something that's super big. It was a really nice campus, and they have really nice facilities and I'm just super excited to go there."
Sergent is currently playing for a travel hockey team here in the Northwoods and will be getting a summer workout plan from her new coaches soon.
Sergent plans to study biology starting this fall in hopes of becoming a physician's assistant.
