Perhaps no one is more excited about the upcoming Harlem Globetrotters game in Salina than one of the players. When the most famous hoops team in the world returns to the Tony’s Pizza Events Center it will be a homecoming for Hannah “Mighty” Mortimer.
Mortimer was born and raised in Salina. She played basketball at Southeast of Saline High School, Brown Mackie Junior College, and Wichita State University.
After graduation, Mortimer, with the help of her twin sister, she produced a series of videos on social media showcasing her ball handling skills. The videos eventually caught the attention of the Globetrotters, who offered her a tryout.
Mortimer nailed the tryout, and is now living her dream showcasing her skills on the world stage as she tours with the Globetrotters. 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.
Mortimer will be welcomed back to Salina next Monday, February 4th, at 7 pm at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center.
