It was a big day for a former United Longhorn and current LCC Palomino volleyball player, as she signed to play her next two years at the division I level. LCC's Ashley Everett signed her name on the dotted line this afternoon to play for the University of New Orleans Privateers. The former Longhorn has spent her last two years working the middle of the court for LCC, all the while keeping her grades up while making the all region academic team. Now she's moving on to the big leagues and the decision was an easy one with a full ride being offered to her.
"That doesn't come very often to someone from Laredo. So that's really what got me, mainly the fact that it's free school."
The sophomore will enroll at the University of New Orleans this fall where she expects to major in biology and move on to medical school when she is done in the Big Easy.
