Our history tells a great story
Ashley Salgado, Class of 2013
- I decided to go to MCC because of Head Coach Alison Lacey. I am extremely excited to play for her. I truly believe that she can help me mature into the kind of point guard and person that I’ve always wanted to be. I can’t wait for the season to start and am looking forward to all of the great experiences with the team. I also liked the idea of being able to get one-on-one attention from my instructors. I can’t wait to play during March Madness and hopefully make it to the JUCO Championships.
Emily Hunt, Class of 2012
- Choosing to attend MCC and play basketball is a choice I will never regret. My teammates have become very good friends and I look forward to playing with them and the coach another year.
Heather Eash, Class of 2011
- I chose to play basketball at MCC because it was in my hometown and I wanted to get my pre-requisites for nursing. I have made good friendships with some of my teammates that will last forever. I enjoyed my first season here and am looking forward to the next one!
Sara Goodman, Class of 2005
MCC – 1st Team All Region 2005; Academic American 2005.
Iowa Wesleyan – Two-time Conference Champ and two-time National Tournament Qualifier.
- Marshalltown Community College was a great place to start my collegiate basketball career. The coaches really cared about us as a team and as individual people. I was able to take the classes I needed for my major and they worked around my basketball and work schedules. The community support was great and living in Marshalltown was a wonderful two years that I will never forget. Being at MCC allowed me to develop my basketball skills that I would carry with me to a four year school. My AA degree from Marshalltown also kept me on track to graduate in four years.
Megan Miller, Class of 2001
MCC – Academic All-American, 2001; Outstanding Student of the Year Award, 2001; 2nd Team All Region, 2000; 1st Team All Region, 2001; Regional All Tournament Team, 2001.
Southern Illinois University – Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award, 2003; Presidents Academic Excellence Award, 2003.
- Playing basketball at MCC gave me opportunities that I did not have coming directly out of high school. Due to the added skills and exposure I received by playing at this level, I was able to earn a full scholarship to Southern Illinois University. I did not have any looks from Division I programs out of high school, but after MCC I had a few to choose from. I not only gained a great education on the basketball court but also in the classroom. With MCC's smaller class sizes, instructors can give you more one-on-one attention and be more directly involved in your education. You will never see a teacher's assistant or graduate assistant teaching a course at MCC. The best part of being a student-athlete at MCC is the immense support you receive by faculty and staff. It is not unusual to see a lot of faculty and staff members in the stands during basketball games. It is this supportive atmosphere that drew me back to Marshalltown Community College for a career and the opportunity to coach. I just hope that I can help student-athletes reach their dreams like I was able to by playing basketball for the Tigers!
