Mrvaljevic spent the past season with the Hamilton Transway team in the JUEL league. The squad finished sixth in league play with a 14-8 record but just this past weekend finished second in the league playoff tournament.
Prior to playing with Transway, Mrvaljevic spent the 2015-16 season with the GTA West JUEL program and in the summer of 2016 was a member of the Canada Drive Blue Star AAU program that traveled throughout the United States.
"Stefanija is a versatile player who will add depth for us while having the ability to play multiple positions. With toughness and athleticism she is a player who is a great fit for our style of play," said Ryerson head coach Carly Clarke about her newest addition.
The Mississauga, Ont. native and four-time honour roll student will enter the Business Management program starting this fall. A soon-to-be graduate from Applewood Heights S.S., Mrvaljevic won a ROPSSAA championship and qualified for OFSAA with her team this season.
"I chose Ryerson because it was a great fit for me both athletically and academically. The amazing academic support was a great advantage as well. The family atmosphere the basketball team has is something that I have heard great things about and was interested in being a part of. Also, Ryerson has proven to be a strong basketball team with great success. I look forward to being a part of a team with that winning tradition," said Mrvaljevic.
The Ryerson Rams women's basketball team's recruiting class now stands at five players.
