Edmond Memorial sophomore tandem Jenny Roy and Andee Decker handle plenty of the offensive scoring load for the Bulldogs.

In the last few games leading up to the state tournament, though, senior Kaleigh Troxell has been hot.

“She's had three good games coming into this week,” Memorial coach Dandy Peeler said. “It's been my challenge to the role players to improve their game in the playoffs and she's definitely done that.”

Troxell moved to point guard this year and has proved to be a versatile threat, whether driving to the basket, finding Roy and Decker or hitting the 15-foot jumper.

“She's also had to defend the other team's best player a lot of the times lately,” Peeler said. “We've made some adjustments and when we've moved Jenny inside, Kaleigh has had to play a bigger role in defending the perimeter.”
