OSU ROTC 300x250

Bristow High School standout, Mollee Mason, is known for her abilities on the basketball court, the softball field and the track. Mason, now a senior, is a two-time Top 100 nominee and one of the favorites for Miss Basketball this season. Her love for the game comes through when you watch her play. 

“I absolutely love the game of basketball and I feel very fortunate to be part of a team that I consider more of a sisterhood. We are like sisters in the aspect of how competitive, committed, and a little scrappy but when we are on the court we become family with one goal in mind and that’s to win,” said Mason. 

This season the Lady Pirates have notched big wins over the likes of Berryhill, Sperry, Wagoner and Henryetta, but Mason and the team know there are bigger games on the horizon. 

“Like any season there have been some ups and downs this year. We have won some big games and we have also fell short in some close games. We hope to continue to learn and grow from the bad times and build on the good accomplishments. We have team and individual goals we want to achieve and are continuing to work hard to accomplish them,” said Mason.

For Mason, academics are just as important as her shooting percentage. She is currently in National Honor Society and is looking forward to going to college next year. 

“I definitely see college in my future next year. I want to pursue a future in computer programming. I’m looking to play basketball at the next level or possibly run track,” said Mason. 

The four-year starting point guard for coach Matt Morgan has enjoyed success in other sports as well. Mason was named 2017-2018 All-Conference, is a four-year starter in softball making the 2016 All-World team and the 2018 All-Conference team. In 2017 while competing in the 4×4, she placed fifth at state and broke school record from 1983. In 2018 while competing in the 4×4 she placed sixth at state, and in the 800m placed sixth at state, and took third place honors at the Meet of Champions. She also broke school record from 1983 with a time of 2:22.21. 

“Mason averages more than 15 points a game, despite defenses being designed to stop her. She led the team in almost every category her sophomore and junior years. Mollee has the heart of a champion and never slows down,” said coach Matt Morgan.
