The Illinois Rockets are proud to announce that Mia Mazza (St. Francis Academy, 2017) will play her college basketball for Coach Bill Gibbons and the Holy Cross Crusaders.
Playing as a member of the Rockets 17U Red squad the past two summers, Mia caught the eye of dozens of DI, DII and DIII colleges. In the end, her desire for outstanding academics led her to Worcester, Massachusetts and the campus of College of the Holy Cross.
“Mia possesses tremendous quickness and athleticism, and she is a really tough kid,” commented Drew Ondik, Rockets 17U Red Head Coach. “All the colleges who recruited her loved both her defensive anticipation and intensity, as well as the varied skillset she brought to the offensive end. Her euro-step finish is one of the very best you’ll see in the high school girls game.”
The Illinois Rockets congratulate Mia and her parents, Mary Ellen and Mike, on Mia’s commitment to Holy Cross!
