Bartlesville, OKla. – The Oklahoma Wesleyan coaching staff has announced that Karena Karges has put pen-to-paper and signed to play with the women’s basketball team this coming season.
Karges, a 5’8 guard from Lexington, Okla., enjoyed a good 2013-14 season, where she led her high school into the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association (OSSAA) playoffs.
“Karena is a great kid with huge upside,” head coach Mark Molder said. “She has quickness, can shoot the ball, and has an unbelievable character.
“We are excited to have Karena in our program and watch her develop as a Lady Eagle,” added Molder.
The seemingly versatile player, during her playing time at Lexington High School, was asked to play every position at one point or another.
In the 13-14 season, Karges was asked to play at the point guard position and she still managed to average 10 points and almost 4 assist per game.
Karges, who was also the valedictorian of her class, joins a talented OKWU team looking to make it’s third successive National Tournament appearance.
The journey to the tourney starts in Mid-August with the Lady Eagles returning to campus and beginning classes.
