Hadley Periman is definitely one to watch on the Tuttle Lady Tigers basketball team. The 6’1 freshman grew up in a family of athletes, so it was only natural for her to take to the court from a young age. Now, Periman is fitting into her role on a team that further encourages her competitive spirit.

“I’ve always loved sports, and my whole family played basketball, so in second grade I started basketball at the YMCA,” she said. “I love competing for my high school, because Tuttle is known for being good at sports and I love the competition that we have.”

The Lady Tigers are finding their footing and working towards their goal of making a name for themselves in the playoffs.

“We are working together everyday to play as one and being able to be comfortable with each other in time for playoffs,” said Periman.

Periman is definitely putting in work on the court, as is evident from Tuttle’s recent game against Chickasha in the Weatherford tournament, where she had a triple double of 12 points, 11 blocks, and 10 rebounds. She had a total of 29 blocks in the three tournament games played.

Her effort is not the only reason she stands out. She is also an athlete who strives for good character on the court, something she knows the value of.

“Having a good character is important in sports, because you are a leader with every action,” she said. “Having a good character reflects on your school and your team, as well as showing your attitude towards the game.”

Periman’s character has been influenced by her older brother, who she admires.

“My biggest role model is my older brother Camden,” she said. “The reason I look up to him is because he goes hard in every sport he does and he always is a great teammate no matter what.”

In addition to basketball Periman also plays softball and runs track. After high school she plans to be in the medical field and would love to continue her basketball career with a scholarship.
