2014 Jostens Trophy Winner

Fischer, a native of Reisterstown, Md., helped guide the Saints to a 17-11 overall record and a trip to the Capital Athletic Conference Tournament, where they fell to 14th-ranked and top-seeded York, 73-65, in the semifinals. Fischer was recently named a First Team All-CAC member for the third straight year after dropping in 15.5 points per game, dishing out a conference-best 6.6 assists per outing, and grabbing 4.5 rebounds per night while shooting 83.2-percent from the foul line (second in the conference). For her career, Fischer set the CAC and MU records for three-pointers made (204) and set school records in career assists (575), three-point shooting percentage (40.1%) and free throw shooting percentage (82.5%). Additionally, she is third at Marymount in scoring (1,664) and sixth in steals (263).

Fischer’s accomplishments extend far beyond the court into the classroom and the community. In the classroom, Fischer sports a 3.97 grade point average as a Business major and has been a CAC All-Academic honoree the past three years. She was named a First Team Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-American for the second consecutive year in 2014.

In the community, Fischer has spearheaded several events such as MU’s annual “Sock it to Me” drive to make care packages for Arlington’s local homeless shelter. She also helped raise over $7,000.00 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital through a walk-a-thon. Fischer, who is Vice President for Marymount’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, also serves as a resident advisor and a peer tutor.
