Anna Florzak averaged 10.2 points a game in her junior season. Florzak is an All-State athlete in basketball, cross country and track. Florzak is shooting for a state championship this year with seven other seniors on her roster.
Anna Florzak is a 5'10 guard that
will bring some incredible athletic ability to Iowa State's women's basketball team next year.
Being one of the top prospects in the state of Missouri, Florzak will attempt to lead her high school,
Notre Dame de Sion to a state championship in Missouri. Her high school is returning
everybody from a team that went 24-3 last season. Individually, last season
Florzak averaged 10.2 points per game and grabbed four steals a game. In setting
a school record, Anna had 13 steals in one game last year.
Iowa State first contacted Anna when she attended a camp in
Ames before her
junior year. She was also heavily recruited by: Nebraska, Santa Clara,
Santa Barbara, Iowa, Missouri, Tulsa, Drake, and numerous
schools on the East Coast. When it came down to it, Iowa State
just felt very comfortable for the athletic guard out of Missouri.
"It just seems really homey.
You're able to feel like you're at home even thought its three and a half hours
away. It's a good fit for me," said Florzak.
Florzak took her official visit to
State on Oct.22 where she
enjoyed getting to meet her future teammates and attending local haunted
"We hung out at Lyndsey Medders
house and we went to the Haunted Forrest. It was really fun to get to know all
of the girls and to get to see what it was going to be like next year," said
One thing that really attracted
Florzak to Iowa
State was they type of
players that Coach Fennelly recruits. Florzak, who is the current secretary of
her chapter of the National Honor Society, is very focused on her
"Coach Fennelly always recruits
the best. He always recruits really smart girls which is really important to me
because I go to a private school so academics have always been important," said
Florzak doesn't just shine in the
sport of basketball. She is the first athlete in her schools history to be
all-state in three sports in one year. Also, her cross country team just won the
state championship last weekend. Though she's coming off the high of a state
championship, it's all business for Anna as she's getting ready to begin her
senior campaign in basketball. With eight seniors on her team, Anna's goal is a
state championship and nothing less.
