Mich’l will join former Pima guard J.J. Nakai with the Lumberjacks. Nakai transferred to NAU from Nevada after the season and will be a senior in 2021-22 after sitting out a year per transfer rules.
“Sierra is a difference maker on the defensive end,” Holthaus said. “She set the single-season block record last year with 72. She plays tenaciously and is a great teammate. Very happy for her and NAU.”
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Pima’s start of the season has been pushed back from November to January per the action plan released by the NJCAA on Monday.
