A 5’10” wing/forward, Sanz played for Sant Adria Club, where she competed in three Catalonia regional championships, winning two, and three Spanish championships, winning one.

“Irene has played for good teams, and her teams seem to always have success,” Svehla said. “She is very team oriented, she brings good versatility, and she knows how to win. Her skill set is solid, and she seems to have a really nice feel for how to play the game.”

Sanz is one of three recruits from Spain to join the Hawks this fall. The women’s basketball season is set to begin November 1.
