COAHOMA - Four years ago Caitlyn Corley knew what she wanted to do after high school. On Monday morning at the Coahoma High School auditorium, it became a reality when the Coahoma senior signed an agreement to play basketball for the Sul Ross State University Lobos.
Sul Ross is a Division III school in Alpine. It plays in the American Southwest Conference and Katherine Novak is the women’s head basketball coach.
Corley, who plans to major in physical therapy, said Sul Ross is a good fit for her.
"I had other schools contact me by e-mail, but I visited Sul Ross and I liked the place," Corley said. "I felt comfortable, at home there. I love coach Novak. I like what she's trying to do with the program, turn it around. I feel she's thinking about the best interest of the team."
Novak said Corley is a "great find" for her team.
"I think Caitlyn Corley is going to be a great fit for our program," she said. "She is a natural competitor. She is hungry to win and get better and obviously has the skills to play at the next level."
Novak, Coahoma ISD Athletic Director Chris Joslin and Coahoma girls basketball coach Jim Kinnear all agree that it's Corley's drive that makes her special.
"She very dedicated and works very hard. She makes a lot of sacrifices. One of her goals was to make it to the next level,” Kinnear said.
"She is an awesome person and athlete," said Joslin. We challenged all of our athletes to commit to summer conditioning every day. Caitlyn took a big step in encouraging all the girls to show up and participate. She plays every sport we offer and excels at every one. Sul Ross is getting a great person as well as a great athlete.”
Novak already has plans for Corley.
"My plans are to play her at a point guard position first. She has the ability to play off guard as well. She will add toughness to our team. Another aspect about Caitlyn's game that really stands out is her leadership ability. She is very vocal on both ends of the court and vocal high school players always have an easier time transitioning to college," Novak said.
The 5-foot-8 Corley has participated in basketball, volleyball, track and field and softball throughout her career. Last year she was first team All-District in 5-3A in basketball. This year, she has led Coahoma to one its best basketball starts in recent history.
The Bulldogettes are 7-2, coming off a second place finish at the O.W. Follis tournament in Lamesa last weekend. Corley is averaging 12 points per contest.
"My freshman year I decided I wanted to play college basketball. Everybody told me I couldn't do it," said Corley. "I come from a small school with not much basketball tradition. I wanted to prove everybody wrong."
Indeed, she did.

COAHOMA — Coahoma High School invites the public to join Caitlyn Corley on Monday when she takes the next step toward her future by committing to play basketball at Sul Ross University in the fall.
Corley, who has been on the varsity Bulldogettes basketball team for four years, will sign the commitment papers at 10 a.m. Monday in the CHS auditorium.
This season as a team captain, Corley has led the varsity Bulldogettes to one of their best starts with five wins and one loss. She was named to the 5-3A Basketball All-District First team for the 2018-2019 season.
The CHS senior has been a member of the varsity Bulldogettes for the past four years. She is also an all-around athlete at CHS and participates in varsity volleyball, track, and softball.
On Monday, Corley will officially ink a deal to join the Division III Lady Lobos at Sul Ross University were she plans to take coursework to prepare for a career as a physical therapist.

COAHOMA — The Bulldogettes found themselves in an 8-point hole early in the first set against the Lady Wolves on Saturday when Head Coach Jamie Bonner called her team into a huddle.
“I told them we have got to play our game,” she said. “We control the tempo of the game. We are going to control our own offense, and we’re going to make them play defensive. We stepped up, and we finally played our game.
Refocused, Caitlyn Corley started off Coahoma’s climb back with a solid kill. Fellow teammate MaKynlee Overton followed with an ace. Both CHS upperclassmen were instrumental in Coahoma’s first district win recording eight kills a piece.
After conquering the first set 25-23, Coahoma (1-1, 9-15) stayed ahead winning next two sets 25-13 and 25-13 despite confronting a tough Lady Wolves defense throughout the match.
“We knew coming in C-City is never going to give you an easy game, ever,” Bonner noted.
“They compete hard at everything. They are going to work hard, they are going to hustle, they are going to get to the ball, and they are going to make plays.
“We made some plays on our side that came from all out hustle, and we executed well,” she added. “We finally put the ball away. MaKynlee Overton just came out swinging. That was huge for us, and our teamwork was solid.”
Beside her kill count, Overton led the Bulldogettes with three aces and three blocks. Zoie Joslin had 18 assists. Julia Cox and Kirah Kimball had four kills each. Cox also recorded an ace.
Overall, Coahoma swept the Lady Wolves on Saturday. The JV Red team won in two sets: 25-20, 25-1
Next: The Bulldogettes travel to Coleman on Tuesday for a district match against the Lady BlueKats. The JV games begin at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. The varsity game gets under way at 6:30 p.m.

SWEETWATER — Serena Dobbs kicked it into high gear as she neared the finish sprinting from 10th to sixth place before crossing the line at the Roscoe Invitational cross country meet held on Monday.
The Coahoma High School freshman recorded her best time this season at 14 minutes, 20 seconds, which is one minute, 29 seconds faster than her last outing at the Western Texas Invitation held in Snyder last week.
Fellow teammate Mason Hudgins also had an impressive day. He sprinted across the finish line at 20 minutes, 55 seconds which is down a full two minutes, 43 seconds from his last race. That was enough to land the CHS sophomore with a medal for ninth place.
In the junior high boys division, Jake Freeman earned another medal. He placed ninth with a time of six minutes, three seconds.
Next: The Coahoma Cross Country team will head to Abilene on Saturday, Sept. 28 for the ACU Invitational.

COAHOMA — The Coahoma Bulldogettes came back from a seven-point deficit to earn a victory against the McCamey Lady Badgers in three sets — 25-12, 25-19, 26-24 — on Tuesday night.
After two straight losses to Kermit and Big Spring, the ‘Dogettes (8-13) needed a win to get their focus back on district which opens Sept. 28 at Jim Ned.
“It was a huge win for us, especially after our loss last week to Kermit in five sets,” said Jamie Bonner, Bulldogettes Head Volleyball Coach following the game. “That was a heartbreaker. We had a really good practice yesterday, and I told them we have to learn how to finish, and we have to win in the end.”
And that’s just what her team did on Tuesday night. After falling to a seven-point deficit (4-11) in the third set, Coahoma went on a five-point streak to cut the Lady Badger’s lead down to two (9-11). By mid-match, the Bulldogettes tied the game after a solid kill by Julia Cox and surged ahead on the next serve.
The Lady Badgers were not so easily dissuaded from attempting to force a fourth set as they came back three times to tie the match before Coahoma put away the game 26-24.
“I’ve been telling them we have to finish,” Bonner said. “We can’t be scared to hit the ball. We have to use our offense the entire game. If it’s working for us, we can’t get scared because it’s game point and just push or tip the ball. We have to hit, and I think we did a good job of doing that tonight.”
Cox led the Bulldogettes to victory with 12 kills. MaKynlee Overton had six and Kirah Kimball pounded out five. Zoie Joslin recorded a whopping 21 assists
