The Illinois Rockets are proud to announce that Celia Satter (Loyola Academy, 2019) has committed to play her collegiate basketball for Coach Michael Shafer and the University of Richmond Spiders.
Celia, a deadly 6’0” shooting wing, led the Rockets in scoring during the recent spring/summer season, while finishing second in rebounds, steals and blocked shots per game. She was the quintessential “stat sheet stuffer.”
“Celia’s statistical performances speak for themselves, both at Loyola Academy and with the Illinois Rockets,” commented Rockets Coach Drew Ondik. “But to know Celia is to experience a kid who is a team leader, a superb teammate, a highly coachable player, an extremely high academic achiever and someone who possesses an incredible work ethic. She is also clutch – hitting many big shots to win games or to send games into overtime.”
Celia has had a decorated high school career (with her senior year still to come), achieving IBCA All-State, All Conference (GCAC), Chicago Tribune All Area, 22nd Century Media All Star Team, JWC Media All Star Team, Thanksgiving Tournament All Star team, Leading Scorer - Loyola Academy 2017-18, 3 Point Contest Sectional Finalist, 2017 USAB U16 Team Trials Participant and a Sectional Championship.
The Illinois Rockets congratulate Celia and her parents, Ann and John, on her commitment to the University of Richmond.
