Makyra Tramble Earns GAC Weekly Recognition


RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – SWOSU Women’s Basketball sophomore guard Makyra Tramble has been named the Great American Conference Player of the Week, announced Monday from the conference office.

Tramble (Shawnee, Okla.) averaged over 22 points per game in SWOSU’s three non-conference games last week. She scored 27 points against both Cameron and Fort Lewis and was one rebound shy of a double-double against Western Colorado when she scored 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds. In three games, Tramble posted 68 points, 23 rebounds and 16 assists.

This is now the second Lady Bulldog to earn GAC weekly recognition. Karly Gore first earned the honor back on November 16th.

Tramble and the Lady Bulldogs finished a perfect 3-0 against a trio of non-conference opponents last week and have now won five straight games after beginning the season 1-2. SWOSU begins GAC play this Thursday (Dec. 2) against Southeastern inside the Pioneer Cellular Event Center and will host their next four opponents.
