When constucting for the 2021-22 Cowgirl Roster last spring Head Coach Jamie Fisher had one thing in mind, and that was to adapt to the conference. It will be a totally different look from last years roster that was very sophomore heavy. Coach Fisher went out and add 13 new faces with only two returners and also had an assistant coach to the program as well. The Cowgirls will be very freshman heavy this upcoming season, but has alot of potiental.
The Cowgirls return two players from last years team in Okay native 5'3 point guard Shayni Green and 6'3 post player from Montenegro Zoja Zekovic. Also stepping into the sophomore group will be former Cowgirl softball player 5'10 post from McCurtain, Oklahoma Makeena Murdock.
"These two ladies have been crucial for me this off-season, because they have been in the program for a year and understand what I want in practice everyday," said Head Coach Jamie Fisher.
The Cowgirls also added 4 transfers to help the two lone returning players to help provide some college experience for the young Cowgirls.
Mikaylin Glover a 5'6 combo guard, who transfered in from Gulf Coast CC is originally from Atlanta Georgia, 5'10 guard Adrian Crcokwell is also Gulf Coast CC and originally from Colunbus Ohio. Adrian will be red-shirting this season, but Milaylin will provide us with scoring opportunities at the guard position. The Cowgirls also added a 6'2 post London Scott transfering in from Texas Weslyan out of Dallas, Texas and Keys Oklahoma native a 5'10 forward transfering from Hesston College Emma McCurtain. London and Emma will help us with height and depth at our 4 and 5 position for this upcoming season.
The Cowgirl freshman class is majority Oklahoma players in locals Gracie Pendley (5'6 guard) from Oktaha, Makayla Admas (5'6 guard) from Broken Arrow, Mariah Jenkins (5'8 guard) from Muldow, Jaiden Conaway (6'2 post) from Roland along with high scholl teammate Makya Perryman (5'4 guard), and Kierra Allen (5'9 forward) from Oklahoma City to the in-state freshman class. The out-state freshman class consist of Jalyn Ford (5'5 guard) out of Fort Smith Arkansas, and Indiya Smith (5'10 forward) from Louisiana.
"Overall this group will bring a different playing style to the Cowgirl program this season, and I have enjoyed coaching them this pre-season." said Fisher "I think we are young and inexperienced but have alot of passion and eagerness, which is got me re-energized this season."
Last but certainly not least Coach Fisher added a new assistant coach to the Cowgirl program in Porsche Young. Porsche is a former player of Coach Fisher's from his days in West Texas at Howard College. Coach Young has been on the high school level at Putnam City Original for the past 6 years as an assistant coach.
"Coach P has been a great breath of fresh air for not only me but for the Cowgirl Program as well. Coach P is very knowledegable and has already built a great relationship with me and the players." said Fisher
"I feel it is important for a coaching staff to have great chemistry and Coach P and I have that going great so far I can honestly say she has been the biggest addition to the Cowgirl Program this season and has instantly made my job easier and basketball very enjoyable again."
