Fischer returns for her second season with the Mustangs in 2017-18, serving as the team's graduate assistant.

A Reisterstown native, Fischer comes to Stevenson following a successful career at Marymount (Va.), where she shined for the Saints. She was a two-time Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Player of the Year and set the CAC record for career three-pointers made (204) while setting Marymount records for career assists (545), three-pointers (204), three-point shooting (40.1%) and free throw shooting (82.5%).

She finished her career in third place overall at MU in scoring (1,664 points) and sixth in steals (263), in just three years. She spent her freshman season at local McDaniel College.

As a senior alone, she was named the CAC's NCAA Woman of the Year nominee, an All-American by Women's DIII News and the WBCA. Fischer was also tabbed First Team All-Atlantic Region by D3Hoops.com, First Team All-Capital Athletic Conference, First Team All-ECAC South Region and was selected as the Virginia Sports Information Directors Association All-State Player of the Year for the third consecutive year. She was also tabbed the 2014 CAC Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

In addition, Fischer boasted a 3.97 grade point average as a senior and was named Capital One/CoSIDA First Team Academic All-America for the second year in-a-row. She was also the first CAC student-athlete to be awarded the Jostens Trophy which recognizes outstanding student-athletes in NCAA Division III basketball for excellence in the classroom, on the playing court and in the community.

As a senior, Fischer averaged 15.5 points, 6.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game while shooting 46.5 percent from the floor, 39.1 percent from three-point range and 83.2 percent from the free throw line. She led the CAC in assists, was second in free throw shooting, third in three-point shooting and assist to turnover ratio, eighth in scoring and ninth in steals.

During her playing career, Fisher was extremely active in the community, organizing Marymount's annual "Sock it to Me" drive to make care packages for Arlington's local homeless shelter and raising over $7,000 in each of the past two years for St. Jude Children's Hospital through a walk-a-thon in 2013 and a "battle of the sexes" on-campus competition in 2014. On campus, Fischer serves as a resident advisor and a peer tutor.

In the summer of 2015, Fischer participated in the 4K for Cancer Run, which benefited the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, by running across the country. Her story was featured in PressBox DC.
