STILLWATER, Okla. — Frontier’s Jalissa Gum was a leader for the Lady Mustangs in the pitching circle in the fall. On the basketball court for the defending state champions, it’s no different as her 14 points helped Frontier knock off Glencoe 71-45 on Nov. 21.

Coach Clay Stephens said Gum is the starting point guard and doesn’t necessarily look for her to score.

“She shot the ball a lot better this season than last season,” Stephens said. “We don’t really need her to score. She does so many other things for us and sets others up to score.”

Against the Lady Panthers, Gum was one of three players in double figures, with Bethany Childs and Sydney Pappan each scoring 11.
