Seneca’s Grotjohn signs to Cottey College basketball

Grotjohn is a 3x first-team, all-conference player and 2022 district POY

WATCH: Seneca High School senior Aliya Grotjohn signs a letter of intent today to continue her basketball career at Cottey College.

“It means a lot,” Grotjohn says. “I’ve worked for this and this is what I’ve wanted to do and I’ve finally reached it. I’m really happy I’ve reached this.”

Grotjohn averaged 21 points and 7 rebounds per game this season and helped lead Seneca to a district title. She’s a 3x 1st-team all-Big 8 player, was the conference player of the year in 2021 and the district player of the year this season. She leaves Seneca as the program’s all-time leading scorer with 1,950 points.

“She’s hard to replace. She scores 20 points a game. Sometimes even thirty or even forty. That’s hard to replace,” says Seneca’s girls basketball coach Drew Schulte. “She’s a special player, a special kid and I wish her all the best.”
