“West Georgia is getting somebody that’s really going to work hard and someone who is a phenomenal team player,” he said. “She’s had some ups and downs and she really didn’t play a whole lot her early years, but she worked really hard and got to where she was in the lineup starting and playing all the time in her junior and senior years. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be around for the last four years.”
West Georgia is coached by Rome native Al Thomas. Before arriving in Carrollton, Thomas led Shorter to a pair of national titles. The Hawks won the 2012 NAIA national championship and captured the NCCAA national title in 2014 during Shorter’s transition year to NCAA Division II.
