Cotton credits her knowledge and familiarity of Coach Arnold's coaching style (from his NCMC days) as a main factor in the decision to attend CMU.
Coach Arnold is the former head coach at North Central Missouri College, and is married to Trenton native Lesley McKay-Arnold. The couple has a daughter, Audrey.
Central Methodist University is an NAIA school, and a member of the Heart of America Athletic Conference. It is located in Fayette, Missouri.
