She went on to have a successful career at Augustana College where she was a 3-time NSIC All-conference player.
Along with playing in a state basketball tournament (2007), she also excelled in volleyball as an All-conference player. She was the 1st Hanson volleyball player to be named to All-state status, leading the Beaverettes to their 1st ever volleyball team appearance in the state tournament. Megan also participated in track, oral interp, NHS, band, choir, and the school play.
Her parents, Randy and Mary Doyle, were a huge part of her athletic success. They sacrificed much time and resources for her to have great basketball experiences.
