PIED­MONT – Pied­mont se­nior vol­ley­ball player Anieshia Alexan­der se­cured the right to con­tinue her play­ing ca­reer on Thurs­day, sign­ing a vol­ley­ball schol­ar­ship with Law­son State Com­mu­nity Col­lege.

Alexan­der will be among 13 fresh­man com­ing into 13-year coach­ing vet­eran Aubrey Wi­ley’s pro­gram for next year, so Alexan­der’s prospects for play­ing time early look promis­ing.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited about the op­por­tu­nity to play at the col­lege level and the new ad­ven­ture,” Alexan­der said. “I had to go through a tough try­out process to make the team, but it was worth it.”

Wi­ley said he al­ready has plans on how to uti­lize Alexan­der’s tal­ent.

“Aniesha is go­ing to be a big as­set to our pro­gram as an out­side and mid­dle hit­ter,” Wi­ley said. “I’m very ex­cited, and I be­lieve that this will be one of the best teams we have ever put to­gether.”

Pied­mont ath­letic di­rec­tor Steve Smith said it’s up to Alexan­der to de­cide what to make of her op­por­tu­nity at Law­son State.

“ I’m ex­cited for Aniesha and her fam­ily and I wish her the very best,” Smith said. “This also serves as an inspiration for oth­ers to work hard on the things they want to achieve in life.”
