MANASQUAN – Marina Mabrey’s trek across the United States continues as the basketball phenom was drafted 19th overall by the Los Angeles Sparks in the 2019 WNBA Draft held at Nike’s headquarters in New York City on April 10.
Mabrey wowed the Shore Conference and state of New Jersey during her four years at Manasquan, capturing division titles, Shore Conference titles, NJSIAA titles, Tournament of Champions titles and numerous Player of The Year awards.
After high school she went on to a tremendous career at the University of Notre Dame, capturing the NCAA title her junior year and losing in the finals this season.
Mabrey joins Neptune alum Shakena Richardson as the only two Shore Conference greats to be drafted in the WNBA Draft. Richardson was selected 30th by the Dallas Wings in 2016.
Mabrey, who is no stranger to championships, will look to get Los Angeles back to championship form. Her three-point accuracy, hard work, dedication and versatility will be a major contribution to the Sparks.
From everyone at Jersey Sporting News, congratulations and good luck at the next level.
