Rowland becomes latest addition for Women's Basketball

Moberly, Mo.

Central Christian College of the Bible head women's basketball coach Reggie Chapple on Wednesday announced the signing of Richlan Rowland for the 2017-18 season. Rowland is the fifth member of the Saints' 2017 class.

Rowland, a 5-6 guard, is a 2017 graduate of eStem High School in Little Rock, Ark. A two-year letterman, Rowland became a starter as a junior and helped the Mets to a 30-8 record that included a trip to the Class 4A state semifinals. Prior to her senior year, Rowland suffered a season-ending injury that kept her out of action for the 2016-17 season.

"Adding Richlan to the program will be a very good thing for us as we grow," Chapple said. "She is a combo guard who has played several positions in the past. She will bring much needed depth to the guard position, and her versatility on the court and her strong work ethic is a great combination which will go a long way in our program. I am excited to coach her this fall and thankful she is coming to Central."

While at CCCB, Rowland plans to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Christian Counseling.

Rowland joins Hunter Salmons of Madison, Mo., Damia Covington of Hayti, Mo., Crystal Eureste of Brownsville, Texas, and Karrisa Baber of Milwaukee, Wis., as members of the Saints' 2017 recruiting class.
