Preston sophomore Chelsea Dungee will be joined by five other players from across the state in late May at the 2014 USA Basketball Women’s U17 World Championship team trials in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Dungee, who is verbally committed to Oklahoma, played on the 2013 U16 team that won the gold medal. She also led Preston to the Class 2A title in March and was a member of The Oklahoman’s Super Five.
Joining her will be Tulsa Washington junior Makenzie Ellis, Edmond Memorial’s Catherine Gould, Elgin’s Jentry Holt, Edmond Santa Fe’s Aahliyah Jackson, Edmond North’s Lauren Koenig.
Overall, there are 162 players competing in the skills and trials sessions from May 22-26 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. The final 12-member roster is expected to be announced May 26.
EDMOND NORTH’S REYNOLDS THROWS NO-HITTER
Edmond North senior Luke Reynolds has been impressive for the Huskies lately.
Monday, though, he was more than impressive as he no-hit Lawton Eisenhower in a 17-0 rout in district action.
Reynolds struck out three and allowed one walk in his five innings of work.
Edmond North entered Tuesday 16-12 record and 7-5 in District 6A-2, which puts the Huskies third in the district standings.
MILLWOOD’S GOLDEN COMMITS TO LAMAR-PORT ARTHUR
Two-time Oklahoman Little All-City first-team selection Ashford Golden of Millwood has decided to continue his basketball career at Lamar State College of Port Arthur, Texas.
The versatile 6-foot-5 Golden verbally committed to the school earlier this week.
After anchoring the interior for Millwood during its state title run in his junior season, Golden was able to move outside to show his perimeter game as a senior. He averaged 14.4 points, playing all over the floor, including occasional work at point guard.
MOORE’S POWELL PICKS MISSISSIPPI VALLEY STATE
After helping Moore to a 17-win season, one of its best years in recent history, 6-foot-8 forward Braydon Powell has verbally committed to Mississippi Valley State.
Hovering around the .500 mark in late January, Moore finished strong with 10 wins in the last 14 games. That included playoff victories over Edmond North and Norman High.
Powell averaged 12 points per game and was a valuable asset because of his size and versatility for the Lions.
