The Horned Frog women’s basketball team begins its season on Friday night, and Frogs guard Zahna Medley hopes to make her final season with the team a memorable one.

The senior from Springfield, Illinois, has been named an All-American candidate for the season, and looks to continue a path of success that has led her to earning fist team all conference honors the last two seasons. Medley led the Frogs last season with 484 points, 129 assists and 72 three pointers.

“The journey has been amazing,” Medley said. “I’ve been really blessed to have the sucess that I have had over the past four years, and even in high school. It’s all been nothing but God’s works.”

Medley was nothing short of an all star during her time at Springfield High School before becoming a Horned Frog. Medley recorded 2,617 points during her high school career, and holds several school records including 531 assists, 435 steals and 525 executed free throws.

“I love to win, I love the game, I just to go out there and have fun on the court and know that I have the best team,” Medley said. “I have great teammates who get me motivated and help make me the player I have. I give a ton of credit to them and my coaches.”

Medley said that her opportunity to play with the program is not something to be taken for granted.

“I can’t believe the four years have gone by so fast, but I’ve very grateful for every year.”

As Medley takes the court, she knows the competition will be competitive as usual.

“It’s anyone’s game. This is one of the most competitive conferences and it will be a fight for everyone. There are no gimme wins.”

In the end, Medley wants to help lead her team to going out on a high note.

“I really want to make it to the NCAA postseason. It’s my senior year and I’ve never been there and I think our team can and will definitely accomplish that this year. We need to come in to conference play, stick to our game plan, and come out with good wins.”
