Bartlesville, Okla. – The Oklahoma Wesleyan Lady Eagles basketball program began building for next season, following the announcement of new talents for the coming campaign.
Head coach Mark Molder announced the signing of Christa Beasler, following a busy recruiting spell since late March.
Beasler, a 5’10″ native of Wellston, Oklahoma, joins the Lady Eagles after a successful Junior College career with Northern Oklahoma College-Enid.
Beasler, who averaged 11.5 points per game, 3.8 rebounds per game, and an impressive 37-percent average from three point range, was rewarded by being named to the OCAC All-Conference Team and Molder is excited about adding such a gifted talent to his program.
“We are very excited to have Christa in the program,” Molder said. “She is exactly what we look for in a player on and off the court.
“We look for Christa to make an immediate impact on program” he added.
Beasler was also delighted to be able to continue her studies in nursing, something that attracted her to the OKWU campus.
“The major thing is I’ll get to focus on what I want to do for the rest of my life (nursing) while playing basketball,” Beasler was quoted as saying on www.enidnews.com, in reference to being able to do nursing.
“You have to focus what you’re going to be doing the next 40 years of your life. They gave me an offer I couldn’t turn down.”
