Iowa Park's Boren Signs With Vernon College

Last week Rider's Cortny Pritt signed to play volleyball at Vernon College.

Today she's got a new teammate. Iowa Park's Shelbye Boren signed her letter Thursday morning in the school library.

Shelbye and the Lady Hawks were Bi-District Champions this year, bowing out to Decatur in the Area playoffs despite Boren's 19 kills in the match. They finished the year 24-11 overall.

Today she talked about her time at Iowa Park and how it influenced her decision.

"I liked that it was a small school," said Boren. "Going from Iowa Park to another small school, I just didn't want to go too big or too far away from home."

She credited her time at IPHS for much of her development. "Iowa Park is the best place, I loved to play volleyball here, and I'll miss my teammates to death. I love the coaches and everyone here, and it's a really good program."

Vernon College also has TiSierra White of Vernon High School, who will be a sophomore this fall.
