All-State Guard, Signs with Clones

Mackenzie Stirmlinger has led her high school team in scoring every year since she was a freshman. This highly touted, 5'10 guard is excited about signing with Iowa State.

Mackenzie Stirmlinger is a 5'10 guard out of Chesterfield, MO, who has recently signed to play basketball at Iowa State. Last year in her junior season, Stirmlinger averaged 15.5 points per game, 5.2 assists per game, 3.9 rebounds per game, and 2 steals a game. Stirmlinger originally committed to Iowa State in March of her junior year, and she hasn't looked back since.


"I really like the people. I just felt really welcome and warm there," said Stirmlinger.


Stirmlinger has led St. Joseph's Academy in scoring every season since she was a freshman. She was a state champion during her sophomore year, and has three different all-conference and all-state awards as well. Mackenzie is also an 89% free throw shooter.


Stirmlinger was also receiving attention from Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Colorado. Stirmlinger, like all of the other commits, visited Iowa State on October 22nd.


"I had a lot of fun. It was really nice because I got to spend a lot of time with the girls and getting to know them. I really liked how I got to go with Anna Florzak and some other recruits too so I got to know them a lot better," said Stirmlinger.


Though she's already had an established high school career, Stirmlinger doesn't believe to be done as her high school team is returning four starters.


"We're going to be really strong this year," said Stirmlinger.


Stirmlinger also said that she plans on attending the Cyclone Classic this year in Ames.
