EDMOND NORTH READY FOR TURNAROUND
With multiple coaching changes the last few years, continuity has been hard to come by for the Edmond North boys basketball players.
But new coach Quinn Wooldridge is hoping to change that. He took over the program in June after coming over from Oklahoma City University, where he had been an assistant the last two years. Before that, he was the head coach at the University of the Southwest in Hobbs, N.M.
Originally from McAlester, Wooldridge played college ball at Oklahoma Baptist before getting into coaching. Now, he hopes to build a strong foundation for the Huskies program.
“I'm the fifth guy in six years,” the coach said. “They've struggled defending, rebounding and taking care of the basketball. We're trying to be better in those areas. We're much better physically.
“I got a chance to coach a lot of the guys in the summer, and I got to know them. I couldn't ask for better kids. The kids are coming in and they're willing to work hard.”
The Huskies picked up their first victory on Friday, 60-49 over Yukon. Up next, they must prepare for another tough test Tuesday night at No. 1 Edmond Memorial.
PARKER, PIEDMONT OFF TO STRONG START
Piedmont junior Sarah Parker tore her Achilles tendon during the summer, but was released just a couple days before her team's season opener.
It's a good thing, too, because Parker has been a big part of the Wildcats' success in the young season.
Piedmont's two losses have come against strong Class 5A teams — Deer Creek and Carl Albert.
First-year coach Amanda Tims' team has been led by Parker, junior point guard Ashley Almond and senior Kylie Boggess.
SOSANYA SEEING MORE PROGRESS IN SECOND YEAR
Emmanuel Sosanya, in his second year as Capitol Hill's girls basketball coach, said he's continuing to see progress from his team.
Capitol Hill was 7-13 last year. The Redskins returned three starters and are 2-1 so far this season.
Sosanya said sophomore point guard Shateke Coulter, averaging about 17 points a game, has stepped up as a leader in the young season.
“She's definitely trying to step into that leadership role,” Sosanya said. “Once you become a leader, now you have to deal with the accountability and responsibility that go with it.
“She's trying to step into that role.”
