Former Long-Time Fairfax Star Grace Mashore Graduates from Stanford With Degree in American Studies
Recently I came across a story about a former Fairfax Stars player that I had not seen before, but wanted to share because it says so much about the heart, determination, conviction, and character that embodies the student - athlete.
Grace Mashore played her AAU / Travel career with the Fairfax Stars, becoming a standout player and leader on the court. In her final travel season during the summer of 2007, she played for now-Georgetown University Head Coach and with a group of teammates that all went on to Division I college basketball careers. Grace earned a scholarship to continue her education and play college basketball at Stanford University.
She had become a decorated player at the National Cathedral School, playing in the Independent School League, earning All Met recognition among her honors and awards.
