Harrison signs to play volleyballl with SIU-Edwardsville

Arguably the best player to ever don the Western Boone volleyball uniform has officially picked her college. Star senior outside hitter Emily Harrison signed her national letter of intent Tuesday to play volleyball at SIU-Edwardsville. "It feels really good," Harrison said. "It is a lot of pressure off of me. I had a lot of decisions on what path I could go on, and I think I made a really good decision because I love playing volleyball, I love the coaches there, I love the campus and it has a really good program for what I want to major in." Harrison, who also considered Morehead State, IUPUI, Akron and Kent State, said SIU-Edwardsville stood out from all of the other schools. "Definitely the team chemistry," Harrison said of what stood out. "I really got along well with the team there. Also the coaches, they live by the same philosophies that my coaches here live by. I matched with them really well." Harrison said that the Cougars coaching staff liked how she can play multiple positions. For more of this story, read Wednesday's Lebanon Reporter.
