The senior class won 92 games in their careers and matched the school record for most wins in a season with 27 victories.
  • Chassidy Cole, a 5-8 guard from Amarillo, Texas, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Iowa State in 2009-10, Bill Cole will be a sophomore for the Cyclones after spending one year at Howard College in Big Spring, Texas. Cole led Howard to a 26-9 record in 2008-09 and a top-four finish in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference, averaging eight points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.5 steals per game as a freshman. Howard was the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 5 champion and qualified for the national tournament. Cole led her region in assist-to-turnover ratio and ranked sixth in steals per game. She knocked down 33 three-pointers at a 32.4 percent clip, which ranked 14th regionally. Cole passed out five or more assists in seven contests and nabbed three or more steals 13 times.[3]
