Phenicia's high school coach Steve Poindexter, said, " She went from a girl that
nobody really knew who she was, but as time went along she kept working and
working. Her confidence grew. About the time she was a senior she was on
everybody's shouting report. Everybody knew who she was. She obviously is a
kid willing to do the little things. She sacrifices her body and is willing to slam her
body to the floor. She's always willing to do whatever it takes, not only in a game.
She does that in practice as well.
"She's just a high-character kid. She's the type of kid you root for. You want to see
them be successful. She made the decision she wanted to play college
basketball. She worked hard and earned it. She's willing to earn her success. I
think her strength is she brings energy to wherever she's at. She brought energy
to our team and she'll bring energy to their team."
New women's basketball coach, Luke Scheidecker, said, "We are getting a great
girl and basketball player in Phenicia. What stood out to me about Phenicia is
her work ethic and desire to excel on the court and in the classroom. She has
been instilled hard-work by her parents and I have no doubt that hard work will
translate to success at Shawnee."
