On June 26, head women's basketball coach John Ishee is to speak at Wichita East High School from 9 AM to 11 AM. Brian Johnson, who two seasons ago took Wichita West to the state semi-finals for the first time in over 40 years, has invited Ishee to address their camp on the values of education, basketball, teamwork, discipline, competitiveness, and citizenship.
"I'm extremely honored and excited to address Coach Johnson's team and any team for that matter," Ishee said. "Coach Johnson and his staff, who last season took Wichita East to their first winning season since 2006, do a great job of teaching, coaching and growing the young women in their program. We're excited about this opportunity and hope to convey some things both basketball and life-wise that will benefit the Wichita East team. We have an outstanding Wichita East High product in Dymond McElrath coming to Pratt in the fall. We're excited about her and what she will bring to our program, the college and the community of Pratt. She is an outstanding person and potentially an outstanding player. She has had great parenting, coaching, and a great family history of outstanding basketball. Her mom and dad were great athletes. Paul Stovall (her uncle) is a hall of fame player at Pratt. He later starred at Arizona State and in the NBA with both the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers."
Wichita East High School looks to have a great day of basketball, fun, comradery, and bonding on June 26. Go Blue Aces! Go Beavers!
