Former Hardi-Simmons Cowgirl Kendra Hassell took her spot among the Big Country's greatest athletics in teh Athletic Hall of Fame on Monday night. BCH Sports' Eric Boynton caught up with the former Division III women's basketball player of the year.

Eric Boynton said, "Kendra congratulations on being inducted this year. You've had a lot of accomplishments, player of the year awards, conference and national. Where does this rank among them?"

Kendra Hassell said, "this is among the highest., but i's something I didn't even really knew existed. The more I found out about it, the inductees that are in this hall really make it such an honor."

Eric Boynton said, "now your a coach. I guess, just talk about what your doing working at ACU for Julie Goodenough."

Kendra Hassell said, "I'm excited to be backin the Big Country. I came back last year. I just hit the ground running, and I've been working on recruiting mostly right now. Just excited to be part of a division one program at Abilene Christian."

Eric Boynton said, "where do you see the program going. I can ask Julie, but where do you guys [assistants] see it going?"

Kendra Hassell said, "only up from here. We had a great season this year. We finished 18-12 against some big division one schools and would have qualified for our conference tournament. We're returning mostly underclassmen from last year's team. So we just hope to do big things in the future."
