Four-year Argyle High School standout athlete Morgan McInaney has signed a NAIA letter of intent to play basketball and join the defending American Midwest Conference Co-champion Lyon College women’s basketball program, Lyon head coach Tracy Stewart-Lange announced.
McInaney, a 5-foot, 7-inch forward, contributed throughout her high school career at Argyle, helping the Lady Eagles to a combined 71-40 (.639) record and four consecutive playoff appearances.
She helped the Lady Eagles to a 25-7 season mark in 2012-13, advancing to the third round of the Texas High School Girls Class 3A state playoffs, after placing second to Lone Star in District 5-3A action. Argyle recorded wins over Sanger (48-41) and Wilmer-Hutchins (55-39), before dropping a 62-40 decision to Krum in the semifinals of Region II play.
The Lady Eagles were 17-12 during her junior season (2011-12), also advancing to postseason play, after finishing second in District 5-3A action. Argyle dropped a 44-25 decision to Van Alstyne in the opening round.
In Inaney’s sophomore season (2010-11), Argyle posted a 17-9 overall mark, advancing to the second round of playoff action before the Lady Eagles fell to Lucas Lovejoy, 68-64, in the second round of Class 3A postseason play.
Argyle was 12-12 during Inaney’s freshman year (2009-10), but still advanced to the postseason, falling to Kennadale (60-54) in the first round.
Morgan is the daughter of Mark and Shari McInaney of Argyle and the granddaughter of Don and Jeanette McInaney and Rich and Annette McCormick, both of Colorado Springs, Colo.
Lyon College posted the most wins in program history this past season, finishing with a 28-5 overall mark, including a 14-0 record on the road. The Scots claimed a share of the AMC regular season crown, along with Columbia College, as both teams secured 17-1 regular season records.
The 2012-13 season marked the second consecutive trip to the postseason tournament for Lyon, the most in program’s history. The Scots have a combined 48-17 (.739) over the past two seasons. Stewart-Lange is entering her ninth season as head coach of the Scots.
