When not playing for the Lady Buffs, Ariana spends time with McAlester High School’s Native American Club — her mother is Mexican, her father Choctaw — and Oklahoma’s Promise. She’s also played for the Future Stars AAU basketball team in McAlester and worked at the Bahama Dawn’s snowcone shack in Tandy Town.
Ariana said she’d like to spend some time living in a bigger city like Tulsa, but eventually return here to raise a family.
With all the bonds she’s formed through softball and basketball, she’ll surely be welcomed back.
