Pair of Lady Tigers’ sign to play basketball at Baker
Having played valuable roles as members of the Cowley College women’s
basketball team, sophomores Courtney Goodrum and JaNeil Robinson recently
signed letters of intent to play basketball at Baker University.
The duo helped Cowley finish 24-8 this past season and win 45 games over
their two years at the school.
“I am proud of what they were able to do for us and think they will do
great at Baker,” Cowley head coach Todd Clark said. “I am elated
for both of them.”
They will be joining a Baker team that finished the 2008-2009 season
with a record of 15-16 overall and 10-10 in the Heart of America Athletic
Neither player’s role entitled them to score much at Cowley, however,
their contributions to the team did not always show up in the statistics.
Despite being only 5-foot- 8, Robinson’s scrappy play helped her
finish third on the team with an average of 4.0 rebounds per game. She
also was fifth in scoring, and was fourth on the team in assists, steals
and blocks. The sophomore from Wamego started every game this past season.
Goodrum, a 5-10 forward from Wellington, came on strong towards the end
of last season as she had 10 points and seven rebounds in a win over
Labette on Feb. 11 and finished with 12 points and eight rebounds in
a victory over Colby on March 3.
Goodrum and Robinson helped the Lady Tigers win 12 of its final 13 games.
