MBU’s All-American Athlete from Italy

Caterina Cigarini, 23, has known since she was 12 years old that she would play volleyball, but the sport has brought much more to her life than she originally imagined. Now, as her collegiate volleyball career comes to a close, she is taking a look back at the relationships she made and the lessons she learned during her time as a Spartan.

Cigarini would post a season-high 22 kills to help lead the Spartans to a 3-2 victory.      Photos courtesy of MBU Athletics

MBU to MLB: One Spartan’s Big League Dream Coming True

Josh Fuentes, who played at Missouri Baptist University five years ago, is now the 11th-rated prospect in the Colorado Rockies organization, according to MLB.com, and he looks to continue his success as he got called up to the Big Leagues this week, delivering a base hit in his first-ever Major League at-bat.

Changing Perspective, Choosing Cheer

Switching from field hockey to the cheer mat, Jennifer Marsh, MBU cheerleading assistant coach, discovered a new love that would bring her to her alma mater to lead the cheerleading squad she was once a member of. Along the way, Marsh discovered she’s also able to relate Christ to the sport and serve as an example to her athletes. 

Jennifer Marsh, a Spartan cheerleader from 2009-13, was part of the first team to advance to the National Cheerleaders Association Nationals in MBU history. Marsh has served as assistant coach for nearly two years and is fulfilled by the growth she can foster on the mat and personally for the members of the squad.     Photo by Madelyn Shotton
