“I am super excited to be invited to the Dallas Wings training camp!” said Seekamp, per GoYotes. “It has been a dream of mine for a very long time and a goal since graduating from USD. I would like to thank everyone at South Dakota who has supported me throughout my career. From coaches, teammates, professors, the entire athletic department and of course all of the USD fans!”
