Mustang’s Avery Ragland- Basketball Spotlight – Presented by Aaron Ruiz – Shelter Insurance

Avery Ragland

Mustang High School 

As Avery Ragland finished her sophomore season on the court, the team had fought through adversity and worked hard to end the year with a 20-8 record and a trip to the state tournament. For Ragland, the season saw her improve areas of her game that helped the team win.

“My personal goal is to earn a bigger role on my team and become the starting point guard.  It would be awesome to get a ring,” said Ragland. “I would have to say my floater game and defensive IQ have tremendously improved this last year.”

Being a student-athlete at Mustang High School means access to great facilities and trainers, something not lost on Ragland.

“We have access to great facilities and trainers. I would also say our home court advantage is huge and it’s mostly just really fun to play home games since our gym is so college like,” said Ragland.

The relationship she is building with her teammates will help this team succeed in the future.

“I love the close relationships we’ve built with each other and how we support each other on and off the court.

The sophomore will now turn her attention to track season. Being a two-sport athlete leaves little time for anything else.

“I play basketball and run track. When I’m not at a school, I spend a lot of time at our local community center playing pick up or working on my game.

Ragland has set high goals for herself, and she is planning for life after high school.

“My goal is to go D1 for basketball and after that I know I want to do something related to basketball or sports,” said Ragland.

Away from basketball and track, Ragland said she enjoys spending time at the gym, working on her game with her dad and little brother, and watching movies. As for next season, Ragland is confident the team will be better and ready for another run at state. “We are still all trying to learn our roles, but we have a pretty well led team, and it is all about people fitting in to their roles and getting in a grove by the end of the season,” said Ragland.z
