Miller graduate Claudia Hadlock finishes a bucket in the paint Monday in Cottey College’s exhibition against SBU. Hadlock has had a tremendous freshman year leading the Comets in Points, steals and assists per game.

Miller alumna Claudia Hadlock made her mark on the Lady Cardinal program and the community as a whole. She was part of seven district championships between basketball and volleyball, a third place finish in volleyball, and the school's first girls state championship in volleyball last year. On top of that, she is a 100+ game winner in both sports with an incredible 86 percent win percentage in her career as a Lady Cardinal. Last fall, Hadlock signed to continue her basketball career with former MSSU coach Maryanne Mitts at NAIA Cottey College.
After a 6-6 start to the year, Hadlock leads the Comets in the majority of statistical categories. She leads the Comets in scoring at 13.7 points per game, assists per game with 3.5, steals at 1.7 and is even fourth on the team in rebounds.
Hadlock continued her special freshman year Monday in an exhibition game against DII Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar. Hadlock led the Comets to a very competitive start in the game keeping the heavily favored Bearcats in check and kept the entire first quarter within six points. Cottey tied the game with 9:49 left in the second quarter. The size and depth of SBU proved to be too much for the smaller Cottey squad and the Bearcats ultimately got the 77-44 win behind a big second half. Hadlock nearly posted a double-double for the Comets with 10 points and 9 rebounds, which was a team high.
