CANTRELL HAS HIGH HOPES

The Skiatook girls basketball team has 15 players this year with two seniors, Mikayla Shulanberger and Charity Burdette. Coach Brad Cantrell is looking forward to a great season ahead. "Our greatest strengths are experience, leadership, and athleticism. Being undersized is potentially the biggest challenge for us, but the girls do a great job of working to avoid that being a negative. Our team works very hard everyday at practice, and is extremely coachable and driven to achieve the goals set before the season began," he said. Coach Cantrell has been coaching basketball for 11 years. This is his third year coaching for Skiatook and he has high expectations for this season. The team is striving to win their conference, host a regional tournament, and qualify for the state tournament. Cantrell believes this team has the drive and determination to get it done. Cantrell loves coaching and finds it a rewarding job. He loves practice even more than games as well as interacting with the students. "We have high character young men and women in Skiatook, and the community and administration is very supportive of our programs." "We call our team a family because I do look at the girls as my extended family. They are a fun group to be around, and that is important," Cantrell said. "Basketball is a grind, and it takes a special personality to play the game at this level. The team is currently ranked 14th in the 5A district with three wins and a loss so far this season. Skiatook Basketball will be hosting a tournament January 7-9th before meeting Pryor on January 12th.
