    Why is she leaving:

  • A. Parker said,

    Yes, it is sad, but it is even ssadder that the Athletic Administration at HPU has continued to fail her since her freshman year. You cannot map a successful season of unaccomplished coaching on the backs of talented players. The leadership was completely lacking this past season, but thats Cheyenne’s fault right? She made the right decision, I feel sorry for the talent that remains, Hendrix is LOST and needs to go back to class.
