The Olivet Nazarene University women’s basketball team is excited to announce the addition of another member to the Tigerball squad for the fall of 2014. Ally Giampapa, a 5-8 point guard from Bartlett, IL, has signed her letter of intent to continue her education and playing career at Olivet.
Giampapa is currently finishing up her senior basketball season at Bartlett High School under head coach Denis Sarna, in the Fox Valley-Upstate 8 Conference. As a junior, she averaged 10.3 points, 3.1 assists, two steals, while pulling down two rebounds a game. She shot .770 from the free throw line to help her team finish with a 15-12 record. She was named FVUC All-Conference, Daily Herald All-Area and team MVP.
Outside of basketball season, Giampapa plays soccer for her high school team and plays AAU for the Illinois Connections under Coach Rusty Becker.
When asked why she chose Olivet she responded with, “I wanted to attend a Christian University with an excellent health science program. I also wanted to play basketball with a very up-tempo style, that’s ONU.”
Giampapa plans to major in exercise science while at Olivet.
