Gomez announces remaining 2009 incoming class

Lubbock, Texas (July 14, 2009) - Lubbock Christian University women's basketball head coach Steve Gomez has announced the remainder of his 2009 incoming class joining Lauren Sparks and Courtney Wilson, as he welcomes high school recruits Becca Biard, Rachel Bookout, Tara Johnson and college transfer Rachel Gray.

Biard is a 6'2" post player joining the Lady Chaps from Beyer High School in Modesto, California.  She averaged 16 points and 14 rebounds a game last season as a senior. Biard shot 46% from the field and 80% from the free-throw line.  She was a First Team All-League (Modesto Metro Conference) member last season and participated in the Six-County Senior All-Star Basketball Classic, where she tallied ten points.  Beyer went 17-9 last season.

Bookout is originally from Dallas, but she has spent most of her life in Austin.  She comes to LCU from Stephen F. Austin High School in Austin.  The 5'10" perimeter player averaged 10.7 points and 3.8 rebounds per game as a senior at AHS.  She was part of the 2007-2008 AHS squad that won the first district (25-5A) title and the first playoff game in program history.  It was her first year with AHS after transferring from St. Michael's Catholic Academy, where she was a First Team All-District 2-6A (TAPPS) member. 

Gray is a 5'6" guard from Post, Texas, transferring to LCU from South Plains College.  She started in all 31 games for SPC and averaged 7.7 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.  Gray led SPC in three point field goals (39) and steals (58), and ranked second in assists with 91 (2.9 per game).  She posted double-figures in points in ten games last season for the 24-8 team, including a high of 18 against Clarendon College.  In 2007-2008 as a freshman, she averaged 5 points and 4 rebounds per game while starting in seven of 29 games.  At Post High School, Gray led all area 2A players in scoring with an average of 15.7 points a game as a senior.  She earned First Team All-District 4-2A honors and was a member of the Class 2A All-South Plains Basketball Team.

Johnson is a freshman coming to LCU from Portales High School in Portales, New Mexico.  The 5'8" point guard was part of the 2006 3A title winning team and last season's state runner-up squad.  She is the daughter of former Portales football head coach Glenn Johnson.  She was on the Portales volleyball state title winning squad in 2007 and also competed at the state track and field meet. Johnson just competed in the 3A North-South All-Star Game.

The Lady Chaps completed a successful 27-7 season in 08-09 with their sixth consecutive trip to the National Championship in Jackson, Tennessee. The 27 wins set a school single-season record. Their season came to an end in the "Sweet Sixteen" round of the National Championship with a loss to Point Loma Nazarene University.
