Women’s Basketball

Hoop dreams and education goals come true in Oakton's Women's Basketball program with a long history of producing players who continue their athletic careers at four-year colleges and universities.

Coach Rauschenberg and Assistant Coach Waller teach fundamentals first, creating a skilled team that comes together to challenge opponents from start to finish for the win.

Each winter, the Division II, Women's Basketball Team plays top programs in the Chicagoland area competing in Region IV of the NJCAA and the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference. Official practice begins early October at Oakton's Des Plaines campus, and competition runs November through February.

Play to compete. Learn to succeed. Earn a degree. Chase your dream.

Sophomore forward Rebecca Bartnicki paced the Owls with 13 points, and freshman guard Atorena Michael added 12 points, including nine in the fourth quarter to key the comeback.
Bartnicki is averaging 12.9 boards per game, seventh best in National Junior College Athletic Association Division II.

Mallory Gonzalez (Mount Prospect, Prospect) and Atorena “T” Michael (Lincolnwood, Niles West) are the first Oakton Owls to earn region player of the week accolades in 2016.
Freshman guard Mallory Gonzalez (Prospect) tallied 16 points, seven rebounds and five steals in the Owl’s 43-42 home loss to Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) rival College of Lake County.
