Ventura heading to Mount Union


On Thursday evening, Maplewood senior sharp shooter Marissa Ventura officially signed to Mount Union to continue her athletic / academic career.  


Marissa was a leader whether it came off or on the court according to her Coach, She gave a lot of opposing coaches a headache and nightmare when it came to scouting especially St John HC, When Marissa was a sophomore she dropped 42 points, while hitting 10 3 pointers in one game. That also broke two single game records, The 42 point and most hit 3’s in a game.
