      Mariska Beijer who represented Netherlands in the most recent Paralympic Games decided to join our women's team. Mariska is 21 years old and has mainly experienced wheelchair basketball in Europe until now.

      She is a young and talented athlete and just proved her skill at the international level being the third best scorer of all female athletes at the Paralympics, averaging 23.1 points per game.

      She has already begun her studies in business in the Netherlands and will continue this path at our university.

      We are very excited to have her studying and training in Whitewater.
