In three years at Northstar Christian Academy Mary Roberts was a part of a struggling basketball program. She helped transform the team into a winner this season. Mary's grades were always winning scores.

Basketball is as discipline as is academics. Having the two together balance themselves out, a balance that has made Mary Roberts into an impressive student athlete. The Northstar Christian Academy senior has a 3.8 GPA and is a member of the National Honor Society. 

On the basketball court this year, Mary became the first Knight to score 1,000 points in her career. It is an individual achievement, but as a leader, Mary will always put her teammates first.

Mary will attend D'Youville College in Buffalo. Once she graduates, Mary will continue to put others before herself.
