National Cathedral’s Marta Sniezek picks up first offer

February 26, 2013

National Cathedral’s Marta Sniezek has collected a scholarship offer from Georgetown, the 5-foot-6 sophomore guard confirmed on Monday.

Sniezek said Hoyas women’s basketball coach Keith Brown extended the offer following her 36-point performance in Sunday’s Independent School League A tournament championship game against Holy Child, which National Cathedral won, 57-44.

“I’m very happy about it. I’m very excited,” Sniezek said. “I looked at their facilities when I unofficially visited last year, and really like the environment.”

Sniezek had accomplishments across the board this weekend. On Saturday, she scored 37 points against Maret and crossed the 1,000 point mark for her career — and she was honored for the achievement before Sunday’s championship win.

Sniezek has been the area’s leading scorer all season long, averaging 29 point per game. She was held under 20 points just once all year, when she scored 17 points against Potomac School back in December.

Sniezek said that she is comfortable with Brown because of his strong ties to her AAU club, the Fairfax Stars. She will continue to play with the traveling team this spring and winter, which will take her on some “exposure tournaments,” she said. Sniezek has also garnered interest from Virginia Tech and Harvard.

“I’m just playing it by ear. Keeping all of my options open,” Sniezek said. “I’m not thinking about committing any time soon…definitely, next year I’ll think about it more. But, it’s a big opportunity to have that [first offer.]”
