Trigg County volleyball player Kelly Bradshaw has signed a scholarship agreement to continue her playing career at Mid-Continent University in Mayfield.
Bradshaw signed the agreement today at the high school along with representatives from MCU.
She said she liked the small campus and coaching staff of Mid-Continent University.
Christa Bakemeier, the interim head coach at MCU, saw Bradshaw play several games this past season and came away impressed with her playing skills, especially on serves.
Bradshaw was an all-district player her sophomore season at Hopkinsville High before transferring to Trigg County. She was an all-district selection again this year and was named the team's Co-MVP as well as leading the Lady Wildcats in aces and kills.
Mid-Continent was 0-26 last year, which prompted the school to part ways with head coach Lilly Zhan. Bakemeier said she has applied for the head coaching position. The program, which competes at the NAIA level, has won just seven games in four years, meaning Bradshaw has a good chance to see plenty of court time early.
