Bullett Announces Current 2017 Recruiting Class

BUCKHANNON – Second-year head women's basketball coach Vicky Bullett is pleased to announce her current 2017 recruiting class.

Bullett has signed five players to the 2017-18 Lady Bobcat basketball squad.

"Even though at this time we have two more players to add to the final roster, our recruiting class this year has been a long hard-fought project as we bring in five new faces," remarked coach Bullett. "We hope to land two possible transfers in the later part of the summer. We will be young with talent, however the potential to impact the program will be how much I can teach my system to them and how much they can absorb early in the season. The leadership of our returning elite players are very important to push the newcomers."

The five current recruits are shooting guard Carrie Barnett, shooting guard/power forward Abi Gabauer, shooting guard Victoria Jackson, point guard Summer Matlack and center Kiara Rodriguez.

"We've recruited particular athletes in order to place their talents in the positions where the team suffered the most last season," said coach Bullett. "I am eager to create more versatile individuals who can play multiple positions.  While defensive is first, an offensive threat to compete with the culture of our conference to shoot well for the three will be a statistic that we have to improve upon."
