Right at home in Edmond.

The athletic, 6-foot-1 middle hitter could probably go to a lot of places to continue her volleyball career at the next level, but she's perfectly comfortable staying at home, which is why she has verbally committed to Central Oklahoma.

She added 397 kills and 28 aces while helping Santa Fe to the Class 6A state title last month.
