Destiny Cozart

     Carterville--Destiny Cozart who won all-conference, all-region, and honorable mention

All-American honors at John A. Logan has signed a national letter of intent to attend Missouri

Southern State University on a basketball scholarship.

     Missouri Southern is an NCAA Division II school in Joplin, Missouri.  The Lions are coached by

Ronnie Ressel a former coach at Rend Lake College.

     "Missouri Southern is a big school with a small school feel," said Cozart.  "They made me 

feel wanted and my teammates were all very friendly.  They play a style much like Logan

although they don't run that many plays.  They just get up and go and I can definitely get

up and go." 

     In a news release, Coach Ressel said, "Destiny can have an immediate impact on our 

program with her ability to score at all three levels, from the 3, mid-range, and at the basket.

She sees the floor like a point guard which I think is one of her strongest parts of her game."

     "Destiny has grown as a player and as a person in her two years at Logan," said Logan coach

Amanda Shelby. "She was a huge difference maker that led to our success.  She leaves Logan

with a lot of success and will continue that success at Missouri Southern as an impact player.  

It will be hard to replace her next year."
