\\ ABOUT ME \\

I’ve had a lifelong relationship with the sport of basketball. Before the age of 12, I had

been a member of teams that won 4 International Championships and was fortunate to have been

voted Miss World Biddy. In junior high, my school did not have a girls basketball team, so I tried

out for the boys team and later became the starting point guard. I was blessed to have my success

on the court follow me to high school, where I was a 4-year starter, earning All-City and All-

State honors. I was later awarded a scholarship to play Division I basketball in my hometown of

Wichita, Kansas, at Wichita State University, where I was a 2-year starter and earned my degree in

Sports Administration. I’ve also been recognized as one of the “50 Women You Need to Know in

Wichita Sports.” And most recently, I was inducted into the Wichita East High School Hall of

Fame, an honor that I cherish deeply.

When I graduated from college, I wanted to give back to the sport of basketball and my

hometown because they had both given so much to me. I spent over 20 years as a coach, mentor,

and community advocate for young women in the city of Wichita. I founded Pretty Girls Pound

the Rock, LLC (PGPTR) with the hope to create a space for young female athletes to thrive in a

way that many of the young women were able to when I was growing up. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Melvin Randle, and our two sons, Jaylen and Julian. And our family currently resides in the Wichita area.
