INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian women's golf team has signed Mira Nicpon as announced by the team Monday afternoon. Nicpon is the younger sister of Nina Nicpon who currently starts for the Knights.

"We are excited to add Mira to the team," said head coach Brett Cope. "She adds additional depth to an already talented team. Mira and previously signed Sloane Winders continue the stream of talent to the Marian women's golf team as we work to become a premier team in the NAIA."

Nicpon will graduate from Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights, Illinois. She played on the boys team during the season, but played in the IHSA state tournament for girls golf in Illinois and had a low score of 78 during the regular season. She won the IHSA Class 2 regional with a 74 and advanced to the state championship with a 75 in the sectional.  She finished 39th in the IHSA Class 2A girls golf state championship with a 158 (78+80).

Nicpon plans to major in Pre-Med.
