Perry Maroons Girls Basketball Preview – Presented by Seth Wadley Ford Chevy Buick GMC of Perry

The Lady Maroons are coming off of a season that saw them fall just short of playing for the state championship. They lost to the eventual Class 3A state champion Jones. Carson Matthews says that as they enter this season, they have high hopes of vying for the gold ball again this season. “We have two returners from last year’s team and both are looking to continue filling up the stat sheets and leading the team,” Matthews said.

“We have a good group of seniors that are ready to step up and play significant varsity minutes. I am excited about underclassmen some of the underclassmen that could have an impact on the season. After losing a lot of key pieces from last year’s team, we still have the talent to be a state tournament team. I am looking forward to girls stepping into significant varsity minutes for the first time.”

One of the returning players from last year’s team is Kennedy Hight (5-8, Jr.). She is an incredible athlete. She already has an offer from Southwestern Oklahoma State University and Northwestern Oklahoma State University and will probably see more arrive during the season. Kennedy is a hard worker and a gym rat and always looking for feedback to improve her game.

Maebry Shields (5-8, Sr.) is also back from last year. She is an incredible athlete and an even more incredible person. She wants to be the best and leads by example in everything she does. She holds herself to a high standard which in turn makes those around her rise to the occasion. A player that looks to play a bigger role this season is Alyssa Goldsberry (5-5, Sr.). While she is an undersized guard, she does not let that stop her. She has a great shot and is looking to contribute meaningful minutes this year. Her personality is infectious and she will put a smile on your face every day.

Some other Lady Maroons to watch for this season are Makenna Justus (5-7, So.), Serenity Beier (5-6, Fr.), Alliyah Shrum (5-5, Fr.), Emery Halford (5-6, So.), Aubrey Honeywell (5-3, Fr.), Bella Porter (5-8, Fr.), Aubrey Allen (6-1, Sr.), Kelsey Mitchell (5-9, Sr.), Trinity Cooper (5-7, So.), Taylyne Simpson (5-0, So.), Morgan Dolezal (6-1, Jr.), and Myah McConnell (5-2, Fr.). The assistant coach this season is Jennifer Pralle.
