Back in 2011, on a November Thursday evening, tragedy struck the community of Mora. It also struck the campus of Oklahoma State University as well as the hearts of many basketball coaches and fans alike.
While returning from a recruiting trip for the Oklahoma State women’s basketball program, Mora native and assistant coach Miranda Serna and head coach Kurt Budke were killed in a plane crash in Perry County, Ark.
To say the small community of Mora was in shock would be an understatement.
