“We are very proud of DavonYa and excited about her choice to continue her basketball career at Lindsey Wilson College,” said RHS coach Calvin Head. “I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this opportunity than DavonYa. She has broke the mold for our basketball program and has set the tone that hard work pays off and in due time you will be able to reap the benefits of putting in the time and effort in becoming a great player. We are definitely going to miss her leadership and her toughness that she brought to our team on a daily basis. We are all looking forward to being able to watch her play at the next level.”
