Volleyball: Mitchell commits to N.C. college Lees-McRae

Douglas High volleyball standout Megan Mitchell has given her verbal commitment to Lees-McRae College in North Carolina.

She'll sign her National Letter of Intent at the high school on Wednesday at 2:15 p.m.

Mitchell, who is the Tigers' starting setter this season, also recently learned that she has been nominated as a candidate for the Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year award.

Mitchell visited the Division II school in the summer and her parents said she instantly fell in love with the campus. She chose Lees-McRae from a long list of colleges, including some top Division I schools.

"Megan has a solid chance to walk into the gym next fall and make an impact," Lees-McRae coach Jamie Petrik said. "She will not only bring an excellent skill set with her but also the experience of playing for a championship team.

"We recruit strong players who understand college is not just about sports - it is about academics. Megan is prepared for college, she knows how to take care of the books and understands that volleyball is an added bonus to the overall college experience."
