Hannah “Mighty” Mortimer Coming Home to Play

KSAL StaffJanuary 13, 2019
The Harlem Globetrotters will return to Salina and this time they will have a hometown hero on the team – Hannah “Mighty” Mortimer.
As the 17th female player in the team’s 92-year history, Mortimer has wowed fans near & far with her ball handling skills, energetic playing style and hustle. She will be welcomed back to Salina as a full-fledged member of the World-Famous Harlem Globetrotters on Monday, February 4th at 7 pm at Tony’s Pizza Events Center.
Mortimer graduated from Southeast of Saline High School. She attended Brown Mackie Junior College in Salina, where as a college freshman and sophomore, she was named All-Region XI and led the region in scoring, three-point, and free throw percentage. Following her stint at Brown Mackie, Mortimer walked-on at Wichita State University where her hard work ethic and savviness with the ball earned her a scholarship to play with the Shockers.  Mortimer graduated with honors and earned a degree in Psychology at WSU.

After graduating from WSU, Mortimer gained Internet notoriety by sharing videos of her basketball dribbling & spinning abilities. These videos were shared by regional and national news outlets.
