“I think she’ll do well, she’s a really hard worker,” she said.

Dutchtown coach Annette Lowery said Cobbins’ future looks bright.

“She can play different positions,”?Lowery said. “With the motion offense, she’ll fit right in. She’s hard to guard.”

Lowery also touted her academic standing. Cobbins carries a 3.5 grade point average.
