Columbia, Mo. - Incoming freshman Sierra Michaelis is set to receive an honor from North Mercer High School. Michaelis will have the number she wore at every home game of her career, 30, retired this summer. Michaelis will join the Tigers for the 2013-14 season after helping the Lady Cardinals to a 122-5 record during her four years with the team.
"It is an amazing honor," Michaelis said. "I can't describe the feeling, I've been blessed."
Michaelis led the North Mercer Lady Cardinals to the program's first state tournament appearance, helping the team to a third-place finish. She finished her career as a four-time HDC All-Conference and All-District award winner, and she was also named to the All-State First Team each year of her career.
Michaelis racked up 3,170 points during her four-year run, which puts her second all-time in Missouri state history. She is a McDonalds All-American nominee, and was also named Miss Show-Me Basketball. Michaelis is a three-time St. Joseph News-Press Player of the Year and a three-time KMZU Dream Team Class 1 Player of the Year as well.
"This is a very prestigious and well-deserved honor," head coach Robin Pingeton said. "Sierra is a proven winner on and off the court. We feel very blessed to have her as a part of our program and we are looking forward to having her as a Tiger for the next four years. To have your jersey and number retired is not something that happens by chance; this honor is one that represents Sierra's unwavering work ethic, commitment, and dedication to the sport. This is something she will remember for the rest of her life."
