Phoenix women add local star in Oskey


GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- The Green Bay women's basketball team has added another local star as Seymour's Hailey Oskey signed her national letter of intent to play for the Phoenix starting next fall.

“We have had the good fortune of watching Hailey grow for the past three years," Green Bay coach Kevin Borseth said. "From day one we knew Hailey was going to be special. Hailey possesses a threat from the outside with deadly shooting and over the course of time has developed a slashing element to her game that makes her extremely dangerous.

"She also has length and good feet on the defensive end which adds to her talents. All this and the fact that Hailey is right in our backyard makes her a perfect fit. We are extremely excited to have Hailey as a part of the Phoenix. Our fans will enjoy watching her play.”

Oskey, who averaged 17.4 points per game last season, is a three-time first-team all-Bay Conference pick and led the Thunder to a Division 2 sectional final last season.

“I've been talking to Green Bay since eighth grade, so I’ve always been very interested in the program," Oskey said. "Being able to go to all their home games that were 20 minutes away was such a nice thing for me, I was able to experience everything at a closer look which made it an easy choice.

"Their coaching staff is very fun, supportive and knows so much about the game of basketball. They're obviously a big reason in my choice to attend the University because I want to be able to experience and learn so many new things about basketball, and I know they will help make that happen.”
