Barton coach Alan Clark announced four more signings for the women’s basketball team for the upcoming season. The four most recently released are all out-of-state players.
One is transferring from another junior college for her sophomore season while the other three will be incoming freshman this fall.
Baylee Robinson will be a sophomore next season, transferring from Trinidad Junior College in Colorado. Robinson is 6-1 and averaged seven points and six rebounds a contest for the Trojans. Barton beat Trinidad State last year in the Otero Classic in a game that Robinson scored six points and grabbed four rebounds. She is originally from Roswell, New Mexico.
“Baylee brings collegiate basketball experience, as well as, needed size to Barton,” Coach Clark said. “She is an athletic forward who can play in the post with really good length which can be utilized in our pressing defense. Baylee is also very personable and will be an asset to our team and campus community.”
Another inside presence comes from Barton’s favorite recruiting hotbed of Memphis. Anterrika Willis, also 6-1, comes to Barton from Mitchell High School. She was an All-District player and Pepsi Best of the Prep selection.
Willis averaged 17 points and eight rebounds her senior campaign.
“Terrika is another player with good athleticism and length with the ability to step out to three-point range and make shots,” Coach Clark said. “We are very proud to have Terrika join the Barton family.”
Juliana Chagas will bring some international flavor to Cougars. The 5-6 guard from Brazil will be looked to help run the team. Chagas played for the Santo Andre/APABA basketball Club.
“One of the hardest working kids around, Juliana can shoot it well and can attack the basket in many ways,” Coach Clark said. “She is a wonderful young lady with lots of upside potential as well.”
The Cougars also inked a talented player from Michigan in 5-10 Stormeigh Mattison. Mattison is from Southfield High School in Michigan – a north suburb of Detroit.
Her senior season she helped lead Southfield to a 20-2 mark after going 18-3 her junior year for a 38-5 combined mark her final two years.
“Stormeigh is a very athletic wing who can defend, score and rebound,” said Clark. “She is another great kid we are bringing in who is fun to be around contributing both great passion and energy to our team.”
Barton has now signed seven players for next season including three in-state signees released earlier.
