No stranger to the program, Repella was an All-America standout for the Mountaineers as a four-year letterwinner from 2008-11. She earned back-to-back Capital One Academic All-America First Team honors by CoSIDA, becoming the first player to do so since Rosemary Kosiorek in 1991-92.
A two-time captain, Repella also earned All-Big East First Team accolades as a junior and senior while picking up second-team honors as a sophomore. Prior to her senior season, she was named to the WBCA State Farm Wade Trophy Watch List, was a Lowe's Second Team All-American and earned honorable mention honors with the WBCA/State Farm Coaches’ All-America Team during her final season. Repella is also a member of the WVU Women’s Basketball All-Time Team for the 2001-2014 era.
After completing her playing career for the Mountaineers, Repella played a season of professional basketball for Federacion Espanola de Baloncesto in Ferrol, Spain. She earned All-Spanish LF2 Honorable Mention and All-Bosmans Team Spanish LF2 honors during her time overseas.
Repella graduated Summa Cum Laude from West Virginia in 2011 with a bachelor of science in exercise physiology, along with minors in exercise and sport psychology and business management. Repella, a native of Steubenville, Ohio, is currently working toward a master’s degree in athletic coaching education at WVU.
