03 Feb 2024 Marlee Raby – Mount Vernon-Enola (501 Basketball Team 2024)
Marlee Raby helped create history at Mount Vernon-Enola last year as the Lady Warhawks won their first state championship in program history. She led the team in assists the last two seasons.
“Marlee is the first kid I have ever moved up as a ninth grader in 19 years of coaching,” said Mount Vernon-Enola Head Coach Adam Carlton. “She led our team in assists last season. She has great court vision, and she is willing to do the little things to win. I expect her to continue to grow on and off the court. She is a great leader for our team. She doesn’t care about individual stats. She just wants to win.”
In her final season as a Lady Warhawk, Raby figures the only thing better than one championship is two.
“We want to go undefeated and win a state title,” Raby said. “We also want to make sure we leave our mark on our community. We want to set the best example possible for the younger generations. We want to show them what hard work can get you. I want to be remembered as someone who always wants to win, as a selfless player and as an encouraging teammate.”
Raby has an offer to play basketball at Henderson State. She is a multi-sport athlete for the Lady Warhawks, competing in golf, cross country, softball and track. She also competes in rodeo. Beyond athletics, she is a member of Future Business Leaders of America, Beta Club and JUST (Jesus Uniting Students Together).
