Streator senior Morgan Sharisky considered Monmouth College, but decided it was too far from home.

So she chose IVCC.

The former Lady Bulldog standout also chose to play basketball and volleyball in Oglesby.

“It’s a good program, very family-like and close to home,” Sharisky said after recently signing with the basketball program. “It’s a great opportunity. I’m looking forward to it. I’m glad I get to play (in college).”

IVCC coach Tom Ptak first took notice of Sharisky after her father, Rick, reached out to him.

“I watched a few games and I was impressed,” Ptak said. “She was a little out of position (at Streator). She’s a four or five, but they lacked a ball handler. She can score. She’s a good rebounder and passer. I like her size. I hope she can adjust and play a little back to the basket.”

Sharisky plans to study to become a physical therapy assistant.
