Gabi Haack

Elementary Education


Haack is majoring in elementary education at Bradley, where she carries a 3.81 GPA. She is completing her student teaching requirement this semester.

Haack, the 2020-21 MVC Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, is also a three-time MVC Scholar-Athlete Team selection. She earned first team honors twice.

She was also a 2019-20 NCAA DI-AAA Scholar-Athlete and a 2020-21 CoSIDA Academic All-District V first team pick. In addition, Haack has qualified for the MVC Commissioner’s Academic Excellence Award three times, MVC Honor Roll in each of her first four years, and the Bradley AD’s Academic Honor Roll in each of her first eight semesters.


Haack has been named the recipient of the 2020 MVC Good Neighbor Award, 2021 MVC Dr. Charlotte West Award, and was the MVC’s candidate for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. This all comes after she received Bradley’s Charles Osborn Award, which annual recognizes the senior student-athlete who best combines academic and athletic success with community service.

Even though she has accomplished tremendous success with the Braves, Haack elected to return for a fifth season to lead a squad that welcomes eight newcomers.

She is a two-time National Strength and Conditioning Association All-American and became the first-ever female to intern with the University of Florida Football Strength & Conditioning staff this summer.


Haack is currently completing her student-teaching requirements at a local elementary school.

She has been an extremely active participant throughout Central Illinois in her tenure at Bradley. Haack has volunteered with the Harrison Community Learning Center, Go Green Litter Pick Up, Girls Light Our World, Children’s Hospital Miracle Walk, and Kick Abuse 5K event. She is also a frequent visitor to patients at the OSF Children’s Hospital in Illinois.


Haack enters her fifth year as a three-time all-conference first team selection. She is the only student-athlete in the nation to begin the season with at least 275 career three-pointers made and 700 rebounds.

While at Bradley, Haack has scored 1,640 points after averaging 13.8 points per game for her career. She needs just 40 more to become the program’s all-time leader. Haack is also just 12 three-pointers shy of the MVC’s career record.

The 2017 Minnesota High School Player of the Year, Haack had just one other NCAA Division I offer when she committed to Bradley. She joined a Braves program that had not won more than 14 games in any of the five seasons before her arrival and she has led Bradley to consecutive 20-win seasons (2018-19, 2019-20), the first MVC championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in program history (2021), and is on the cusp of leading the Braves to the winningest 5-year period in program history.
