State Fair Community College sophomore center Grace Morrow will continue her academic and athletic career at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL), a Division II university.

The Atlanta native helped SFCC to a 14-17 record and an appearance in the Region 16 tournament semifinal round. She is the third Lady Roadrunner to announce her college plans.

“Grace played her best game in the region tournament semifinal,” said head coach Kevin Bucher. “She had a great game and gave us a chance to win. I know she will continue to improve over the next two years at UMSL.”

Morrow played in 28 games while starting in 20 as a sophomore. She averaged 5.8 points per game and pulled down 5.8 rebounds per contest, which placed her third on the team in rebounds. She led her team in blocked shots with 1.8 per game, which placed her 34th in the nation.

“UMSL has a need for a post player,” said Bucher. “I know they are excited to have Grace on the team because of her size and strength, which they need. Grace wants to get back to a larger city like Atlanta and pursue premed studies. UMSL can get her into that field, so this is a great situation for her academically and athletically.”

As a freshman, Morrow averaged 3.6 points per game, while playing in 26 games and starting five. She pulled down 3.1 rebounds per game and registered a team-high 1.4 blocks per game.
