Tragedy has once again struck the Oklahoma State athletic program. Head women's basketball coach Kurt Budke along with assistant Miranda Serna were killed when a plane they were traveling in crashed in Perry County, Arkansas Tuesday evening. The wreckage of the plane was found around 10:00 pm and all four people on board perished including the pilot and another person not affiliated with the university. Budke had been traveling on a recruiting visit. Games scheduled for this weekend have been postponed.
Rivalries aside this is just tragic. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the families of these two coaches and the others who lost their lives in this horrific crash.
