COLLEGE CONNECTIONS: Ex-Bruin zumFelde honored by EMU

GOSHEN — Junior Marla zumFelde was recently named Royals Athlete of the Week at Eastern Mennonite University after averaging 20.0 points per game for the women’s basketball team.

The Bethany Christian High School product is back at full strength this season after tearing her ACL during the first practice a year ago.

zumFelde drilled six 3-pointers as she scored a career-high 21 points in an 80-57 win over Washington Adventist and five triples (19 points) in a 69-65 loss to Roanoke.

“Roanoke was a bigger team that forced us to hit shots outside of their 2-3 zone, and we were not able to do that,” zumFelde said in an interview on the school’s Web site.

She is looking to step into more of a leadership role for the team.

“Regardless of the score or the opponent, my goal is to add a more verbal aspect to my game that I believe will benefit our team,” zumFelde said.

On the season, zumFelde is shooting 31.3 percent (41-of-131) from beyond the arc. She has totals of 36 rebounds, 17 assists, eight steals and five assists.

Last semester she received a 3.92 GPA while majoring in biology with a focus in pre-physical therapy.
