**For Immediate Release**
Another Top Recruit Joins Lady Aggie Basketball
-by Aggie Sports 07/20/06

Goodwell, Okla. — Five points . . . that’s all that stood between last season’s Oklahoma Panhandle State women’s basketball team and the NCAA Tournament. Though the Lady Aggies lost to St. Mary’s 69-64 in the conference title game that would have sent them to the “Division II Big Show” – they left the court with their heads held high and the players and coaches set out for another shot at it in the 2006-07 season.

With several top players returning, head coach Jerry Olson and his assistant Brad Vanden Boogaard are set to begin their third season late this fall, and things are again looking good for Lady Aggie basketball.

One of the commitments from a top recruit comes from Sarah Polson, a native of Hennessey, Oklahoma who played last year at Allen Community College in Iola, Kansas. Polson agreed to be a Lady Aggie in April and was on campus this week getting registered for fall classes.

Polson is a 5’7 shooting guard who led her team in three point scoring last season, helping the team qualify for the regional tournament. A good student, she plans on majoring in psychology at OPSU.

Polson said she is impressed with what she has seen at OPSU and looks forward to playing “Jerry Olson-Style Basketball.”

The Lady Aggies finished with a 15-14 record last season and their run at the league title (winning nine of their last 13 games) was very exciting.

Look for more success with LADY AGGIE BASKETBALL.
