Named a NCAA Division I-AAA Scholar-Athlete last year, Haack was a first-team Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete in 2019-20.  She also garnered second-team MVC Scholar-Athlete recognition as a sophomore.

Haack has been named the Bradley Scholar-Athlete four times in her career and is a two-time recipient of the MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award. Landing on the Bradley AD Honor Roll all seven semesters, Haack has earned a spot on the MVC Honor Roll all three years at Bradley and owns a 3.80 cumulative grade point average.

Character

The Minnesota Player of the Year as a senior, Haack had just one other NCAA Division I offer before committing to Bradley where she has been a two-time all-conference pick.

Haack has helped take a team that had not won more than 14 games in the five seasons prior to her arrival to the first back-to-back 20-win seasons in program history the last two years. A team captain, Haack often leads by example and was named a NSCA Strength & Conditioning All-American in 2019-20.

Community

Haack, who earned the MVC Good Neighbor Award last winter, has been active throughout Central Illinois during her time at Bradley. Haack has volunteered at the Harrison Community Learning Center, in addition to being a part of team volunteer efforts with the Girls Light Our World annual events. Haack has also been a part of the area’s Go Green Litter Pick Up.

Haack also served at the Children’s Hospital Miracle Walk each year, along with being a frequent visitor to the Children’s Hospital. Haack has also assisted with the Kick Abuse 5K.

Competition

A two-time first-team All-MVC performer, Haack was named to the preseason All-MVC squad prior to the 2020-21 campaign.

One of two active players in the nation with 220 made three-pointers and at least 550 rebounds, Haack is one of seven players in MVC history to reach both marks and holds the Bradley career three-point field goal mark (228). Haack has been named the MVC Player of the Week three times in her career.

Haack is currently seventh in career scoring at Bradley. Additionally, Hack ranks 13th in MVC history with 256 career three-pointers, and is one of four places in MVC history with 250 career three-pointers and 600+ career rebounds. Last year, Haack was one of just eight players nationally with 65 three-pointers, 175 rebounds and 65 or more assists.

Haack has started 87 consecutive games and ranks seventh in Bradley history in made free throws. Through games of Feb. 7, Haack ranks third in the MVC in both scoring (16.2 ppg) and rebounding (7.2 ppg), and paces the conference in three-pointers per game. Haack’s 70 career double-digit scoring efforts are tied for eighth in Bradley history, and the senior has helped Bradley to the first back-to-back 20-win seasons in program history the last two years.

Haack is currently one of only two players in the nation with 50 three-pointers, 50 made free throws, and 125 or more rebounds.
