Colby Community College head women’s basketball coach Antowin Edwards announced three Kansas student-athletes have signed national letters of intent to play for CCC in 2016.

"As a staff we felt we needed to get bigger and better on the wings and in the post. We also felt that it was imperative to go after local kids that were winners, in addition to recruiting talented kids from Eastern Kansas. I believe that these young ladies are a great start to addressing our program's needs," Edwards said.

Following are the recent additions to the program with further comments by Edwards.

Amari Barksdale, a 5’7” combo guard from Highland Park High School in Topeka. Her senior year Barksdale was an honorable mention All-City League selection while averaging 7 points per game. “Amari is a super athletic guard that is a lock down defender. Her ability to really sit down and guard will make it difficult for wing players. Her defense and athleticism will add quickness and defensive aggression to our team.”

Elizabeth Keltz, a 5’11” forward from Cheylin High School in Bird City. Her senior year Keltz averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds and two steals per game and was selected to the Western Kansas Liberty League First Team. “Elizabeth is a talented forward that can play on the perimeter. She comes from a hard working program coached by her father and her high basketball IQ will help her adjust to the college game. Her ability to shoot the long ball will help stretch the defense and she adds needed size to this young roster.”

Krynndra Rush, a 5’7” combo guard from Golden Plains High School in Rexford. Rush averaged 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals as a senior and was a Western Kansas Liberty League First Team selection. “Kynndra is a talented guard that can play multiple positions on the floor. Her ability to shoot the long ball will add more fire power to a talented young roster.”
