Women’s Basketball Lands Top Recruit from Turlock, CA

Presque Isle, ME – Head Women's Basketball Coach, Gavin Kane, announced that Turlock High School senior standout, Sarah Musselman, has committed to the Lady Owls for next school year. Musselman will study in the Physical Therapy program at the University of Maine at Presque Isle. 

In her time at Turlock, Musselman played three years of varsity basketball, four years of golf, and one season of soccer. Sarah started at point guard for the Bulldogs leading her team to the California High School Tournament again this season, averaging 9.0 points per game from the point guard position, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals while shooting 40% from the floor.

"Sarah is always the first player in the gym and last to leave. She was the one player our staff wanted on the floor at the end of a tight game. Sarah knows the game and is a calming presence at the point," said her Turlock High School Coach and father Mark Musselman.

Coach Kane on the commitment, "I have recruited all over the country as well as in Canada, and Sarah was a priority recruit and the player I wanted the most to come in and lead our team for the next four years. She is a complete player who defends, has a great handle, sees the floor very well, and has a feathery soft jumper with range. Her basketball IQ and feel for the game are exceptional. She had tremendous coaching in high school and will be very well prepared to step in and make an immediate impact for us. Just as important to me as her ability on the court, is that she is a wonderful young lady from a great family. I want our program to consist of players who are quality people and quality student-athletes and Sarah is undeniably both."

Turlock finished the 2017-2018 season with a 21- 6 record and lost in the 1st Round of the Division 1 Tournament.

"I'm looking forward to taking the next step in my basketball career and education," said Sarah Musselman. "I'm excited to play for a coach who has been as successful as Coach Kane and I welcome the challenge of helping him and the team develop a winning tradition."
