Sherry Griffin was the first "superstar" to play Cowgirl basketball. Coach Peggy Williams said, "Sherry is one of the best all-around players I've ever seen." A junior college transfer from Coahoma, she led her team to a record of 34 wins and 25 losses against mostly NCAA Division I schools. She was twice named as the team's MVP. She established 9 individual records and led her team to establish 14 team records. She also led the Cowgirls to their first appearance in the Texas Women's Collegiate State Basketball Tournament.
