It’s often been said the more things change, the more they stay the same.

This couldn’t be more true when it comes to for- mer Turner Lady Falcons standout Andi McGill.

During her time as a member of the Lady Fal- cons, McGill excelled on the court with basketball, and on the eld with the Lady Falcons softball team. She was also part of the Lady Falcons golf team that won the state title in 2014 along with her sisters Perri and Traci.

These days, not much has changed for McGill when it comes to excel- ling at multiple athletic avenues, except maybe where she applies her tal- ents now on the campus of Southwestern Christian University in Bethany.

McGill just finished up her senior season as a member of the women’s golf team, where she was named to the Sooner Ath- letic Conference All-Ac- ademic Team, as well as earning a spot on the Sooner Athletic Champi- onship All-Tournament team at the SAC Champi- onships this spring, where she nished tied for fth overall.

McGill was also named to the 2017-18 Sooner Athletic Conerfence Com- missioner’s Honor Roll.

On the basketball court, McGill suffered a knee in- jury last November, but was granted a medical redshirt, 

so she will be returning this season to finish out her sports career, having received her degree this past April in Physical Education. She’ll also be the graduate assistant coach for the women’s golf team this season.

During the 2014-15 season, McGill averaged 10.9 points per game along with 4.5 rebounds while scoring 402 points for the year.

She was able to top her scoring average the following season when she finished averaging 12.3 points per game with 48 steals for the season while averaging four rebounds per game. 

In 2016-17 McGill averaged nine points per game with 3.3 rebounds while scoring 305 points, before averaging 6.3 points per game last season when her injury occurred. 

“I didn’t have the typical college athlete experience since I was playing both golf and basketball,” McGill said. “It was really good though and I had a lot of fun with it.”

“The biggest difference in college golf was the quality of competition,” McGill added. “There are also a lot more girls at each tournament, which makes it tougher to place in the top-10 than it was in high school.” 

Ironically though, McGill added she didn’t originally plan on even playing golf at Turner, saying it was something that happened out of necessity, and the need to help keep a team on the links.

“It’s really kind of funny when I think that I almost never played golf in high school,” she said. “I didn’t start playing until my sophomore year and I only did it because they needed two girls to make a team and my twin sister Perri had decided to play. I hesitantly joined the team, and I’ve never regretted the decision for a moment.”

Later that year, McGill and the Lady Falcons would place third overall at the state tournament, before having just three golfers on the team her junior year.

However, all three golfers from Turner were able to qualify as individuals for the state tournament.

Then, in 2014 a special moment happened when Andi got to win a state title along with her sisters Perri and Traci.

Andi plans on getting a teaching/coaching job following this athletic year at Southwestern Christian University.
