Oklahoma State forward Bryn Gerlich belongs to an exclusive club, one that includes players whose mothers also competed at the collegiate level.

Krista Gerlich is considered a Texas Tech women’s basketball legend, having helped lead the Lady Red Raiders to a national championship in 1993 along with teammate Sheryl Swoopes. She is now the women’s hoops coach at University of Texas-Arlington. 

Meanwhile, the younger Gerlich aims to carve her own niche in the Cowgirls program.

The 6-foot former Colleyville Heritage standout helps OSU collect rebounds. As a freshman last year, she brought down a total of 24, average one per contest. 

The Cowgirls kicked off the season with a 62-47 win over Idaho in which Gerlich snagged a board and blocked a shot.

At Heritage, Gerlich scored more than 2,000 points and took home district MVP honors twice. She was also named the 2017 Texas Christian Athlete of the Year.
