Emily Rigney is taking her volleyball skills to Milligan College in Tennessee.
The Boyle County senior signed a letter of intent for a partial athletic scholarship to attend Milligan Sunday, and will also receive an academic scholarship to help pay for school. Rigney said she's looking forward to the challenge of college volleyball.
"It's going to be a lot more competitive than high school," Rigney said. "The skills will be a lot better and it's just a lot faster game. Hopefully I'll be ready for it."
Rigney credits her time with the Bluegrass Area Volleyball Association, her club team, for the big steps she's made in her game. In fact, Rigney signed her letter at the Lexington Ice Center, where BAVA plays.
