Rebecca Pickens was one proud coach Wednesday.
Two of her seniors from the North Buncombe volleyball team signed with colleges — libero Morgan Ballard (Wofford) and outside hitter Cameron McAbee (Tusculum).
“I’m so excited for them and know they will do their best to represent North Buncombe,” Pickens said.
“They’ve worked so hard. It’s sad in a way, we’re really going to miss them both.”
Ballard was an All-Mountain Athletic Conference player for the Black Hawks (17-9) this past season who scooped out 587 digs. She had more than 1,500 for her career.
McAbee missed the majority of her senior season with a knee injury. As a junior, she was an All-MAC selection who had 236 kills, 174 digs, 39 aces and 28 blocks.
