Watkins Memorial's Oyster steps down as coach

Watkins Memorial High School girls basketball coach Kyle Oyster has stepped down.

Oyster compiled a 14-69 record in four seasons. Last season, Wakins Memorial finished 5-16 overall and 4-10 in the OCC-Capital Division to finish sixth behind champion Olentangy Orange (14-0).

The Warriors are expected to feature a more up-tempo style next season following the graduation of 6-foot-1 post player Mathea Tenwalde, who has signed with Division III Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She was the team's only senior.

The top returnees are expected to include juniors Brittany Bronder (forward) and Melinda Nickel (point guard).
