The Lady Tors softball team retired the number 12 worn by former Tor and softball standout Marikate Maggio, who died in an automobile accident in San Antonio last fall.

“It was the most wonderful thing,” Marikate’s mother, Georgann Maggio, said. “She just loved softball, was very passionate about it. And the No. 12 was so important to her. For her it would’ve meant everything in the world, and for me, it does as well.”

“Marikate was one of those people that I don’t think I ever saw in a bad mood,” Michelle Profitt, who was an assistant coach for the Lady Tors softball team during Marikate’s senior season, said. “She was the teammate who constantly cheered everyone on. She found the positive in everything and everyone.”

“I would always say that she ministered to people, and not in a religious way, but ministered to their well-being, to their quality of life,” Georgann said. “I think that’s the greatest legacy there is, and I think it represents her very well.”
