Charles Page High School senior Cierra Scott signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Central Christian College of the Bible Wednesday morning, making her the thirteenth collegiate player to come from the Class of 2016.
Sand Springs currently has four football players, four soccer players, one baseball player, and three softball players also headed to college teams this fall.
Scott was the lone senior on the girls' basketball team this year, and will leave behind some big shoes to fill. The 5'7" guard has put up triple digits all four years of her high school career, and this year was her biggest.
Averaging 5.67 points per game over her career and 6.23 her senior year, Scott was fifth on her team in scoring this season. She finished the season with a career total of 550 points and a career high of 18 points in a game against Bixby at the beginning of this season. She connected on more than 40% of field goal attempts this season and 54% of free throws.
The Central Christian Saints belong to the National Christian College Athletic Association and compete in the Midwest Christian College Conference. The Saints finished last season with a 17-11 overall record, but finished the season before 20-8 with a conference championship and were NCCAA Division II National Runners-Up.
Scott will be pursuing a Bachelor of Religious Studies degree from CCCB while also working on a degree in Business Administration from a partner college.
