As Fall Arrives Fairfax Stars Class of 2015 College Commitments Grow

10/20/2014 -

The Fairfax Stars basketball program has established a long track record of players earning opportunities to continue their education and play college basketball through athletic and academic scholarships.  Some have played multiple sports.  Many have gone on to complete their education, enter the workforce, and then return to the Fairfax Stars as coaches to teach the next group of players what it takes to be successful in the game of life.

More than 25+ of those players are currently competing at the Division I level and several former Fairfax Stars players are competing in the WNBA and overseas.

The Class of 2015 is shaping up to be another extremely successful example.  On the girls side, for nine consecutive years, every player of a year's graduating class has earned the opportunity to continue their education through an athletic scholarship.  That is an impressive data point by anyone's measure.

The following players from the 2014 U16 Girls Nike Elite Premier Showcase team, and U16 Girls Travel team, Class of 2015, have announced their verbal commitments to continue their education and play college basketball:

Kelly Koshuta            Madison High School                Virginia Tech

Marta Sniezek            National Cathedral School         Stanford University

Karlie Cronin             Oakton High School                  Southern Methodist

Chandler Smith          St. Mary's Ryken High School   William & Mary

Misha Jones               Battlefield High School             William & Mary

Maegan Mikkelsen     Woodbridge High School          Bucknell

Sydney Jordan            Stonewall Jackson HS              Princeton University

Princess Aghayere      South Lakes High School         Pennsylvania

Kierra Palmer             Aberdeen High School              Bryant University

Daja Burnett               Severna Park High School        U. S. Naval Academy

Katie Meckus             O'Connell High School             North Florida

Brianna Sullivan        Colonial Forge High School      College of Charleston

All of the remaining current players on the team are considering and evaluating a range of offers and we will continue to update this list as those decisions are announced.

In addition, we are pleased to include our 1st Class of 2016 commitment, as Stephanie Jones announced her verbal commitment to continue her education and play at the University of Maryland
