Mallory Pleiman, an Occupational Therapist at Versailles Health Care Center, recently was inducted into the 2017 Hall of Fame at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio.  According to Shawnee State University, Mallory Albers (now Pleiman) had one of the most significant careers in the illustrious history of the Shawnee State women’s basketball program. 

A four-year player, she played in at least 30 games all four seasons of her career. Albers is seventh all-time in scoring in program history with 1,622 points, and is one of 29 players in program history to surpass the 1,000 point plateau.  She is also eighth all-time in field goals made (525), fifth in three-point field goals made (214), fourth in field goal percentage (.386), second in free throw percentage (.808), fifth in steals (226), seventh in minutes played (3,390), and is in the top 25 in virtually every other category.  Albers was a three-time All-American Mideast Conference selection, named to the third team in 2007-08 and to the first team in both 2008-09 and 2009-10.  She was a two-time NAIA All-American, named to the third team in 2008-09 and to the first team in 2009-10.  Albers was the best player on the 2009-10 Shawnee State women’s basketball team that finished the NAIA Division II National Runner-Up, averaging 17.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 2.3 steals per game.

A native of Fort Loramie, she graduated from Fort Loramie High School in 2006.  Following high school, she attended Shawnee State University where she earned her Bachelor of Natural Science with Biology Concentration in 2010 and her Masters of Occupational Therapy in 2012.  Pleiman has been a part of the Versailles Health Care Center Therapy Team since November 2014. 

Pleiman and her husband, Jordan, live in Fort Loramie with their two children.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, running, and attending Fort Loramie athletic and community events. 

“It is such an honor to be inducted into the Shawnee State University Hall of Fame,” shared Pleiman. “I would like to thank my various teammates over the years at SSU and Fort Loramie High School who helped me make it to the Hall of Fame.  It definitely was not a sole effort but required the help of all of them.  This same teamwork is what I love about working at Versailles Health Care Center.  Our therapy department works together as a team for the best outcomes for our patients.”

When asked about Pleiman, Facility Rehab Director, Shannon Condon, said “Mallory has been an excellent addition to our team. Her sense of teamwork and flexibility sets her apart as a leader among leaders. She is well respected by her peers and loved by her inpatients and outpatients. We are all very proud of her accomplishments, on and off the basketball court.”
