She shot better than 60% from the field and was a first team all-state selection. Schany finished her career with 1,173 points and 682 rebounds and earned first team all-conference three years. An Academic All-State pick, Schany was named to the Des Moines Register's Academic All-State team. She plans to study health science at Northwestern and is the daughter of Jeff and Erin.

"We are thrilled to welcome Molly to our basketball program and to our campus at Northwestern College," said Head Coach Chris Yaw. "Molly has great work ethic, is selfless as a teammate and pursues her best on and off court with a high level of character. Molly has had a tremendous high school sports career. On the basketball court, she has good length and strength to play physical around the basket. She is a versatile athlete who runs the floor well and good ball skills that allow her to be creative and pass well. We are excited for Molly to begin her time at Northwestern and we look forward to her career as a Red Raider."
