LaToya Randle


What launching Pretty Girls Pound the Rock means to Coach Randle:
Success, to me, is about empowering and inspiring young ladies to go after their dreams.


LaToya Randle, recently named one of the "50 Women You Need to Know in Wichita Sports" in 2020,  is an award-winning collegiate athlete who earned numerous recognitions.  Affectionately given the name “Mama Toy” by her Wichita State University teammates, Randle has always wanted to give back.

Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Randle developed a love for basketball at age 6.  Naturally talented, Randle began playing under the coaching direction of Paul Bushell. Bushell developed her talent and helped her rack up various awards including the Paul Fleeman Award, Miss Biddy, and  Miss World Biddy in 1993. Randle then went on to play on the all Boys’ Team at Robinson Middle School under the tutelage of the late Randy Jackson. At Robinson, LaToya (Jackson ) Randle started at guard and the Rams went undefeated.  Her spotlight grew during her prep years at Wichita High School East where she earned All-State and All-City honors as a Lady Ace.

Randle would go on to study sports administration and management in college, graduating in Spring 2003.

She joined Wichita Public Schools in 2003 spending her early years with East High Girls’ Freshman Team, North High School Boys’ and Girl’ Varsity Teams before becoming the Girls’ Head Coach at Southeast High School.

Randle is married with two sons.
