Coming off a Class 5A State Championship, the Lady Hornets of Booker T Washington are facing a fair amount of changes. They’re back in Class 6A and are now in the Frontier Valley Conference, which will lead to tougher competition on a nightly basis.
Another change, is a potential new star player, who has a very familiar last name for 918 area basketball fans. After starting her prep career in Arkansas, junior Wyvette Mayberry made her debut for Booker T Washington. The skilled guard got off to a hot start from beyond the arc, and also off the bounce. As she scored herself, and set up her teammates. Hornet fans will have to be hoping that her time at Booker T will mimic her older sister, Kaylan. In 2013, Kaylan Mayberry was a key player on their Class 6A 2013 State Championship squad.
For now, Mayberry and her teammates opened their season with a 59-46 win over Sapulpa. It’s a good start to what should be a very competitive Fronter Valley Conference girl’s season.
