Jonesboro senior Raven Wynn was precisely the type of player Central Georgia Technical College needed on its roster and in the backcourt.

On May 1, Wynn decided to continue her basketball career with Central Georgia Tech in Macon.

“Raven really has a knack for scoring and we needed that,” CGTC women’s coach Fala Bullock said. “That is a skill set we will be losing with our departing sophomores. She has the ability to get to the basket. She can shoot the 3 and has great court vision.”

(On May 2, eight Lady Cougars signed scholarships to four-year colleges.)

“We instantly had chemistry when I went down there,” Wynn said. “I had a good scrimmage with their returning players and I could see myself having two good years with them.”

Wynn also had CGTC’s attention because of how effective she could be without the ball.

“She’s also a great on-ball defender,” Jonesboro girls’ coach Lamar Harris said. “They are getting a well-rounded basketball player with a high basketball IQ.”

“She also plays some tough defense,” Bullock said. “She is not scared or concerned with how tall, fast or big they are.”

This past season, Wynn was utilized as a reserve due to the returning amount of talent and chemistry the Lady Cardinals had. But she is expected to fulfill another role this fall.

“Raven has a really great opportunity coming to us,” Bullock said. “She has an opportunity to come in and start and play a legitimate amount of minutes early.”

“I asked her to make some adjustments to her game for the sake of our team and she was willing to do that so the team could be successful,” Harris said. “When I needed her to beat someone off the dribble or score, she would do it.”

Last season, the Lady Cougars posted a 25-6 record, while Wynn helped the Lady Cardinals earn a 26-4 mark.

“I plan to go in with a good head and work hard,” said Wynn, who will major in sports management.

“Do whatever they ask me to do because obviously they know what they are doing.”
