Macey Howell – Healdton

Like many athletes, Macey Howell got started in her sport at a young age. With the encouragement of her mother, who was also her coach, Howell quickly discovered her love of basketball about ten years ago.

“My mom coached me from first grade to fifth grade [in the] winter league program,” she said. “I’ve been loving the sport since I started.”

Howell’s fellow Healdton High Bulldogs recently showed their support for the sophomore guard in VYPE’s online Southwest Regional Miss Basketball Poll, pouring in over 43,000 votes. Howell is happy to represent her school and takes pride in competing. Her favorite thing about being a student athlete is, in her words, “the satisfaction of knowing I’m representing my family, my teammates, and my school.”

In addition to basketball, Howell also competes in track and cross country, and is involved in FCCLA, FCA, and student council. She is a motivated individual in the classroom and on the court. She says that her coaches and teammates are constant encouragements to her, as well as the love and support of her hometown people. Howell also looks up to former Tulsa University player Kaden “Brady” Eibner as a role model. 

“Kaden encourages me to always believe in myself and push hard to reach my goals,” said Howell.

This season Howell is looking forward to the Lady Bulldogs “winning as many games as possible” and developing into a closer, stronger team on and off the court. After high school she plans to continue playing the sport she loves on a college level.
