A silver lining after the season’s end: Coach Coale is blogging once again. So grab a cup of tea and cozy up to read about the rich blessings born in this season.
We hope to see our Stilettos in full force Monday, April 15 as we celebrate the Sweet 16 season at the WBB Banquet. You can expect a great video and photo time with the players, so bring your tissues! Registration is 6:00-6:45 pm, dinner and program will follow. Advance reservations are required, so contact 405-325-8322. Tickets are $45/Child $30. The banquet will be at the NCED Conference Center and Hotel, located at 2801 East State Hwy 9, Norman, Oklahoma 73071.
Last month, we asked Stilettos to save the date for a Tuesday, April 16 mentoring event with female student athletes. As we continued our plans with our gracious speaker Mo Anderson, we discovered that other commitments for our student athletes were amassing daily. In the end, very few athletes could attend. Regrettably we will need to postpone this special mentoring event until the fall. We know that mentoring our student athletes is top priority for Stilettos, and we will continue to focus on initiatives that positively impact the futures of our female athletes.
SAVE THE DATE—We will launch a year of mentoring and other Stiletto activities beginning with “My Sister’s Champion” on September 10, 6:30-8:30 pm.
Sweet 16 in OKC!

Never mind the 11-0 deficit to begin the game, and the ankle injury that put Aaryn Ellenberg on the bench for the second half. Big plays by Sharene Campbell, Morgan Hook, Joanna McFarland and Nicole Griffin and HUGE contributions from Hartman, Durrett and Kornett insured a decisive win. That’s how you define TEAM!
