Harris inks with West Texas A&M
Rogers High senior Emily Harris fulfilled a dream of playing college volleyball on Monday afternoon by signing a national letter of intent with West Texas A&M at a ceremony in the commons area at the high school.
The 6-foot-3 middle blocker was a three-year starter for the Lady Mounties and helped her team to the state tournament each of those seasons, including back-to-back quarterfinals appearances the last two seasons.
Harris received interest from Eckerd College in Florida, Nicholls State in Louisiana and Colorado State-Pueblo, but she said she fell in love with the coaches and team in Canyon, Texas.
"I just felt the vibes on campus, and I just knew that was where I was supposed to be," Harris said. "It's different from Northwest Arkansas, but I'll still get to hike, and I'll still get to have that experience. It's just a whole different thing, and that'll be fun, too."
Anderson signs with Drury University
Greenland senior Austin Anderson signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Drury University in Springfield, Mo.
Anderson led the Pirates to the Class 3A state championship game last season both at the plate and on the pitcher's mound.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder, who also plays quarterback on the football team, batted .443 with 34 RBIs last season for Greenland (27-9). On the mound, Anderson was 8-3 with a 2.75 ERA.
