Simpson University Sports News


REDDING, Calif. - Esther Wofford has shown that age and academic year don’t determine skill level. In her first season playing for the Red Hawks, Wofford has demonstrated great court knowledge and a willingness to score while also successfully dishing out to her teammates.

Wofford is averaging 8.9 points per game so far this season. She leads the team in assists, with 28 total and 2.15 per game, and blocks, with five total averaging 0.39 per game.

This past weekend, Wofford had eight points in Simpson’s 84-39 loss to No. 1 Vanguard University and 19 points in the Red Hawk’s 68-57 loss to Cal State San Marcos University.

“Basketball has impacted my life by giving me that one thing that I always have passion for and has always been my main outlet, helping me through tough times,” said Wofford.
