Brown ready for next level

     Edna Cowgirl Cassidy Brown signed her letter of intent to play volleyball for Victoria College on Friday, March 10. For Brown, the signing was the result of her hard work and she credits her coach for helping her get there.

     “Coach (Jill) Koop has taught me for the last seven years,” Brown said. “As a player, you look at your coach and you always want to give her your all, and that is what Coach Koop did for me. She never gave up on me no matter what happened. I had some angry moments, but she was always there for me.”

     Being close to home and having friends attending there also swayed her decision toward VC.

     “I knew I wanted to go to a school that was local and around my family, so when the coach came and talked to me about VC I knew I would love to join the team,” she explained. Teammate Layla Perry also signed to pay at VC and former teammate Kaitlynn Curlee is already going there.

     Brown wants to go into education and coaching and she is hoping VC will soon bring in a track program.

     “They’ve been talking about introducing a track and field program,” she continued. “If they do, I would love to participate.”

     Although she won’t be far from home, Brown says she will miss seeing the people she is used to seeing every day, but she is ready to move to the next level.

     “I’m excited to start a new chapter, but I’m also scared because I know I won’t have all the people I used to have with me all the time,” she concluded.
