Allie Grazulis basketballPalmer’s Allie Grazulis will go down in history as one of the greatest women’s basketball players for Colorado School of Mines.

She ranks third in school history for career rebounds and single-season free-throw percentage.

And she’s a two-time All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference pick.

Grazulis, of Colony High fame, was named to the second team for the second straight year after averaging 11.7 points and 10.2 rebounds in 26 games.

The 5-foot-11 senior forward tied for the RMAC lead with 10-rebound games [15] and was fourth in double-doubles [9]. She made 95-of-115 free throws for .826 percentage.

Grazulis is third in Mines history with 796 career rebounds.

Off the court, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Geophysical Engineering last year and is currently in graduate school, working on her master’s degree in Geophysics.

“Working hard is one aspect sort of helps you with the other,” Grazulis told me. “I’m really lucky to be going to this school because it’s so respected academically and has such a great reputation. It’ll help me get a good job, so that sort of pushes me.”

Last month she was named to the RMAC Honor Roll with a 3.36 cumulative GPA as an undergrad.
