Women’s Basketball

Oakton’s women’s basketball team, an annual contender for the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference crown, has a long history of advancing to the NJCAA Region IV Final Four and producing players who continue their athletic careers at four-year colleges and universities. In 2012, the program welcomed new coach Kristi Melone, an Oakton alumna who competed for the team herself from 2006 to 2008.

Freshman forward Jackie Cardenas (Niles West) scored a team-high 24 points in Oakton’s 59-33 road win over Wright College on December 13.
Women’s Basketball Update
