Women's Basketball Adds to Recruiting Class

The MACU Women's Basketball team has officially announced the signing of Sarah Woolard, Kayla Kent and Regina Woodley for the 2020-21 season.  

Sarah Woolard, a 5'10 forward completed her high school career at Millennium Charter Academy in Mount Airy, North Carolina.  While at MCA, Woolard averaged 5.3 rebounds per game as a senior, while helping her teams go a combined 30-30 over her two seasons including a win in the CAASC Div II Championship Game as a junior.  

Joining Woolard, is Kayla Kent, a 2018 graduate of James B. Hunt High School in Wilson, NC.  Kayla is transferring to the Lady Mustangs by way of Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC.  A sophomore on the court for the Lady Mustangs, Kent started 9 of the 24 games she appeared in at JWU, while helping the Wildcats win the EMAC Tournament Title and land a spot in the USCAA National Tournament.  As a freshmen she averaged 5.9 points per game and scored in double figures 5 times on nearly 40% shooting from the field to go along with 2.9 rebounds per game.  

Returning to the Mustangs is forward Regina Woodley, a 2017 graduate from Hertford County High School in Ahoskie, NC.  Woodley, a 5'10 forward, last played for the Mustangs during the 2017-18 season where she averaged 4.8 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game.  She set a career high in rebounds against Davis College with 11.

"The addition of these three young ladies is tremendous for our program going in to 2020-21 and they collectively affect our overall depth, versatility and experience.  Kayla and Regina are experienced collegiate players while Sarah brings additional size to the post for us.  I am really looking forward to getting all 13 players on the court and I believe the sky is the limit for our team this year."  ~ Coach Charles Troxell
