This past Friday and Saturday, Mansfield’s very own sophomore Makayla Strutton, was invited to play in the Top 75 basketball camp by Arkansas Athletes Outreach (AAO) in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

During the 2018-2019 basketball season, Makayla stood out in the difficult 3A-1 conference. She led the Lady Tigers in many statistical categories including points scored, steals, rebounds and pass deflections. This helped gain her some attention from outside sources, earning her this prestigous invitation.

Makayla competed in multiple games throughout the two days, impressing many in attendance with her hard work and determination. Before the final game, she was honored with making the top 20 team at the camp.

Makayla had this to say about her experience, “All of the girls there were very nice and encouraged you to do the best that you could do. Even though most of us have never played together, we played the game very well and worked very well together. It was a great experience and I’d love to do more things like it.”

Lady Tigers head coach, Joshua Bryan, said this about Makayla’s invite. “I’m excited that Makayla had the opportunity to take part in such a prestigious camp. She earned the right to take part and then made our Tiger family proud with her display of basketball talent and knowledge at the camp.”

Makayla doesn’t want her basketball career to end with high school and has plans to pursue ball in college. This past weekend she took a big step towards that goal.
