Lady Wolves on the prowl
By Robert Przybylo
As I’ve said before, I worked at Shawnee before making my way here. And so maybe a 5-4 record isn’t the greatest example of a turnaround. But when you were 1-21 the year before, it more than qualifies in my book.
So for now, my vote goes to the Shawnee Lady Wolves. A new coach, a transfer and maturing sophomores have brought SHS back to respectability.
Bad timing for the blog as this is coming off Shawnee’s worst loss of the season at Carl Albert, but many teams can say their worst loss was at the hands of the Lady Titans.
The biggest change has been at coach where Johnny Vick has taken some raw talent and is slowly developing them into real basketball players.
Another addition has been the transfer of Jordan Clay from Geary. A two-year starter, Clay gives the team some much needed experience. Vick said Clay’s biggest contributions come off the glass where she can easily snag 10 boards per game.
But make no bones about it, the strength of this team is in the backcourt. Sophomores Brittany Stevenson and Meagan Mahtushquah were mere freshmen last year and suffered their fair share of lumps and bruises.
