Lady Bear coaching staff

Former Harrison County standout Camryn Whitaker was named an assistant coach for the Missouri State University womens basketball team on Tuesday. Whitaker comes to Missouri State after serving as an assistant coach for two years at Austin Peay State University, where she played key roles in the Lady Govs recruiting efforts, guard development, team travel and scouting operations.

The 2000 graduate of HCHS was a standout point guard for Western Kentucky University where she started 117 of 126 games, helping the Hilltoppers to 97 victories and post-season appearances in each of her five seasons with the program.

Camryn is going to be a great fit for our program, said second-year MSU head coach Nyla Milleson. Shes very personable, and we feel that not only playing experience, but also the experience shes gained the last two years as a Division I coach will make her a great asset for our program.
