Kellogg adds second junior college transfer
MARYVILLE, Mo. – Northwest Missouri State women’s basketball added its second junior college transfer with the addition of Rackell Goldson Monday by way of Allen Community College in Iola, Kan.
Goldson was a two-sport athlete at ACC earning Honorable Mention All-Conference accolades after leading the Red Devils in scoring, rebounding and blocks. Her 12.5 points per game and 8 rebounds per game were fifth and second best this past season in the Jayhawk Community College Conference (KJCCC).
“Rackell is a great addition to our program,” first-year head coach Mark Kellogg said. “She will provide athleticism and toughness as well as an ability to score the basketball. She can shoot it with range, put the ball on the floor and is an excellent rebounder at her position. We are thrilled to have Rackell join our Bearcat family!”
In addition to her success on the hardwood, Goldson was also an all-conference performer during the indoor and outdoor track and field seasons and was a national qualifier in the long jump and triple jump. She was also named ACC Female Athlete of the Year for the 2011-12 school year. Goldson is from Orlando, Fla., where she prepped at Pine Castle High School.
Goldson is the fourth addition to the Bearcats for the 2012-13 season by Kellogg since being named the head women’s basketball coach on April 10. Kellogg has now added two junior college transfers, Monique Stevens from Southeast Community College and Goldson, along with a pair of high school seniors, Tara Ellerman and Hannah Branch. Tember Schechinger, a high school senior from Manilla, Iowa, signed a letter of intent to play for the Bearcats during the early signing period in November.
