Notes  Following a record-breaking Cross Country, Track and Field, and Ice Hockey career at both Loretto High School and Saint Paul High School, Gina took her athletic abilities to new heights after receiving a full scholarship to Princeton University.

In 1984, following an undefeated season, and winning the Women's Ice Hockey Ivy League Championship, Gina was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year. Displaying incredible diversity, Gina was named to the All-Ivy Team for both women's ice hockey and women's soccer in each of her four years at Princeton. It was during this time that Gina met her future husband, David Marotta, goalie and captain of Princeton's men's hockey team.

In 1987, Gina combined an intense competitive spirit, fierce determination, stellar leadership, and unparalleled drive to create a spectacular senior year. She was elected captain of both the women's ice hockey team and the women's soccer team and was awarded the highest honour in North American women's ice hockey: ECAC Player of the Year. Gina's most cherished athletic accomplishment came later in 1987 when she earned the distinction of Outstanding Female Athlete at Princeton.

Equally committed to excellence in academics, Gina graduated from the Princeton School of Engineering with a degree in Civil Engineering. She later received an Honours MBA in Finance from McMaster University.

Gina continues to instill the values of good sportsmanship and commitment to sport in not only her five children, but in many others through her dedicated coaching ;
