When asked about her thoughts on MSC and her new journey, Bankston said, “Murray has become my second home. I have been blessed to be a part of such a great program with supportive teammates and coaches. I will miss MSC, but look forward to the challenges of a university and a new softball program.”

Bankston, a Rattan, Okla. native, is a criminal justice major and plans to eventually pursue a masters in psychology and become a forensic psychologist.
