Connors State sophomore Megan Hartness has signed a NCAA Division II National Letter of Intent with the University of Central Oklahoma, announced by Cowgirls head coach Jamie Fisher.
Hartness will be joining Broncho’s head coach Guy Hardaker this fall for the 2017-18 basketball season.
Hartness said she chose UCO because she feels this is where she is supposed to go, and that she has always been drawn towards Edmond.
“I’m really proud of her, she’s overcome a lot this past year,” said Fisher. “She transferred in from Henderson State, and now she’s headed to one of the best D-2’s in the country. I think it’s a great fit.”
Hartness was an All-Region first team selection and All-Conference pick and in the running for newcomer of the year.
Hartness averaged 11-points and four-assists per game, and was one of the leaders, who will be greatly missed at Connors State.
“She was a cornerstone to the foundation of Cowgirls basketball,” said Fisher.
With Hartness, the Cowgirls finished with a 19-9 mark, their best record in six seasons under second-year head coach Jamie Fisher. The Cowgirls also qualified for the Region II Tournament for the first time in six years.
