Ms. Loreena Pickens was recently inducted into the Foley High School Hall of Fame.
Ms. Pickens is a 1982 graduate of Foley High School where she led the Lions as team captain of the girls’ basketball program from its beginning in 1978 – 1982. She was named all-county and all-region for four consecutive years while scoring among the very top numbers of baskets in the history of Foley HS basketball, despite playing before the advent of the three-point line.
Coach Tommy Catlin remembers her as definitely one of our school’s most prolific scorers and a cornerstone of what quickly became a powerhouse program for the Lions.
After graduation from Foley HS, Ms. Pickens went on to play for Faulkner State on a scholarship, and she resides and works in Foley today.
