Lady Conq Basketball Signs Two Local Standouts

Apr 13, 2012

The DC3 women’s basketball team has announced the signing of two DCHS standouts for next year.  Former Lady Demons, Brenna Briggs and Kesha Buckner have signed letters of intents to play for the Lady Conqs next season.  Head Coach Lucas McDonald had this to say, “We are excited about both of these young ladies being a part of our program.  They bring so much to our program, both as people and basketball players.  We believe that not only do we have to surround ourselves with great basketball players but also great people, Brenna and Kesha epitomize that.”

Brenna Briggs leaves Dodge City HS as the all-time points leader.  Briggs averaged 13 points, 2.8 assists, and 2.4 rebounds per game her senior year.  She was name KBCA 6A Third Team All-State and will participate in the annual KBCA All Star Game in August.  Coach McDonald believes Briggs can make an impact immediately, “Brenna shoots the ball well and gives us another perimeter threat.  As a coach, you always need shooters and she definitely helps us create more depth at the shooting guard spot, we can’t wait to see her coming off screens next season.”  Briggs is the daughter of Justin and Tracee Briggs.

Kesha Buckner missed most of her senior season because of an ACL injury.  Playing only 10 games because of the injury, Buckner averaged 8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 2.1 steals per game.  Kesha was named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year following her junior season and is the all-time steals leader at Dodge City HS.  Coach McDonald is very excited to have Buckner become a part of the Conq family, “Kesha is coming off an ACL injury, so she really didn’t get the opportunity to showcase all that she can do during her senior season.  We are excited about her aggressiveness on both ends of the court, which will help create offense for us.  She likes to get in there and mix it up, something we lacked during last season.”  Buckner is the daughter of Anthony and Cheryl Buckner.

Briggs and Buckner were very successful while wearing the red and blue at Dodge City HS and Coach McDonald can’t wait to get them on campus next year.  “We feel the future is very bright for these two and look forward to seeing them in purple and gold.”

Kesha Buckner and Brenna Briggs sign their Letters of Intent with Head Coach Lucas McDonald and Assistant Coach Crystal Reed.
