CHICKASHA – Familiar with the Sooner Athletic Conference and NAIA women’s basketball, Leandra Johnson is excited to begin her first assistant coaching position with the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
“She’s young at heart and spirit so I think she’ll really relate to the players well,” head coach Laci Tompkins said. “But she just has a poise and professionalism about her that is very exceptional.”
CHICKASHA – Two well-rounded Drover softball seniors were honored nationally this week for strong performances both on the field and in the classroom.
Center fielder Christina Wilson and right fielder Ashley Sanders were named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes.
Ashley Sanders Sanders, a physical education senior, completed her second season with the USAO softball team. She is out of eligibility to play, however, after playing two seasons of basketball at Blue Mountain Community College.
With the new school year beginning, seven new students will be joining the Drover ranks of the USAO men’s basketball team.
Assistant coach Vinson Metcalf said he thinks the crop of recruits immediately will contribute positively to the team.
“We are very excited about every one of them because we think they are going to come in and make a immediate impact on our program,” Metcalf said. “We have eight returning players, so to get these type players coming in to go with these guys already in the system, we are very excited about this upcoming year.”
CHICKASHA – The USAO baseball and softball teams look back at the now-completed 2011 season with pride. Both teams battled in every game throughout the season to meet their goal to reach the SAC tournament.
“All in all, it was a winning season, and the guys worked real hard all year to get where we wanted to go and that’s all you can really ask for,” Assistant Baseball Coach Matt Hibbitts said of the baseball team.
