First-year coach Jeff Zinn, who came to Anadarko from Newkirk, said the two Beatty girls have a very typical sister relationship.

“They'll be the first to celebrate with each other, and they'll be the first to get on each other if something goes wrong,” Zinn said. “They're great for each other. They seem to be more than sisters; they seem to be best friends.”

Zinn said having a player like Lakota Beatty allowed him to work with the defense, which he thought early on was the key to their championship run.

“You can just put the ball in her hands and good things are going to happen,” Zinn said.

“Everybody sees her skills, but I think her number one attribute is that she's probably one of the best competitors I've ever seen. When everybody else gets nervous, she gets determined.”
