Clayton signs with University of Tulsa
Checotah senior Olivia Clayton made school history on Wednesday when she signed her letter of intent to play collegiate basketball for the University of Tulsa. Clayton, a 6’4” basketball standout, is the first Division I female basketball player from Checotah.
“We’re just really happy for Olivia. She has great talent and has been a permanent fixture to our basketball program and works hard in practice. We wish her the best in her future endeavors,” Checotah head basketball coach Jim Glover said.
Clayton averaged 12.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots last season, winning the district championship and reached the area tournament for the first time in at least 20 years.
