Bookmark and Share

Leading the cougars in rebounds, points, 3 pointers, assists and blocks... Laura Johnson helped keep the Cougars in the running this despite losing a lot of leadership from last season.

Travis Traphagen says:"She's kind of steady Eddy.. She doesn't hunt her shots so much that its taking away from the team.."

And Johnson.. enjoys the extra chances to score.

Laura Johnson says:"I've been called on to score more. And actaully even more than that rebounding.. So I just pride myself with rebounding."

And that extra scoring and leadership responsibility is something Johnson has been looking forward to ever since she was a freshman.

Laura says:"I just felt like it was natural for me to step up and to be that go to player.. I always knew I was capable of it.. And this year it's just happening."

On or off the court, Johnson's coach.. says the junior excels.. and can't wait to see what she can do in her senior year.   

Traphagen says:"Even though she's a great basketball.you know she's equally as much a great kid. She's involved..whether it's the F-C-A.. very very good in the academic world."

Despite a sub 500 season.. Laura Johnson leads her team on the court and the stat sheet.
