Many suprises meet the 2010 – 2011 season. The Lady Rangers will return with six sophomores from last season. Shatricia Tillis from Waco; Michelle Shephard from Killeen; Julisia Dention from Waco; Adrienna Davis, a second team all-conference selection from Killeen; Shauniece Lewis from Baytown; and Chelsea Chimney from Tyler.
Transferring in from Lawton, OK is sophomore DeJeana Fountain and sophomore Amanda Perry from Venus, Texas. The new freshmen coming to Ranger are Shanea Johnson from Houston, Shirley McGowen from Houston, Dinecia Armstrong from Houston, and Deseree Wylie from Killeen.
The big surprise came during the summer when former head coach, Courtney Garrett, resigned. Newly hired assistant coach, Terry Simpson, was assigned the head coaching duties and Ranger’s head golf coach, Curtis Harris, took on a second duty as the assistant women’s basketball coach.
Coach Simpson and Coach Harris believe that, based on the number of sophomores returning and the overall quickness of the team, Ranger College will put a very competitive team on the floor for the 2010-2011 season.
