Short-handed Shockers compete in MAYB tourney
Last weekend, the Oklahoma Shockers traveled to Oklahoma City for the Mid America Youth Basketball Tournament in Oklahoma City. Made up of Hennessey’s high school girls’ basketball team, this is the second time in the last four weeks the Shockers have played in an event in Oklahoma City.
Unfortunately for the Shockers, two starters missed time due to injuries. Point guard Skye Simunek sat out the entire event, while guard Meagan Tillman didn’t participate during pool play and only played sparingly on Sunday.
Without two of their leaders, the Shockers struggled to consistently produce on the offensive end, but it did open up opportunities for some of the younger players. Kassidy Amburn handled the majority of the point guard duties, and while she usually plays off the ball with Simunek in the lineup Amburn looked comfortable getting the ball up court.
In place of the two starters, Karlee McNulty and Harlee Dowell jumped into the opening lineup. Both played bigger roles, as did Kamree McNulty and Noelle Pollard, while Yuridia Perez and Hunter Miller both spelled Gracie Mills and Hunter Miller.
