Nicole LaMantia has been an integral part of the Chicago Mission program for years going all the way back to when she played on the U10s . Nicole has worked very hard on developing her game and becoming a complete player . That work has paid off as she recently accepted a full scholarship to the play for Coach Mark Johnson at the University of Wisconsin . A skilled defensemen Nicole brings not only immense talent but also a high compete level to each and every game . A dedicated student she takes that same energy into the classroom and will surely do great things at Wisconsin in the classroom as well . She will join former Mission standout Mikaela Gardner in 2018 patrolling the Wisconsin blue line . Congratulations to Nic and the entire LaMantia family!
