Why UNCW? The whole atmosphere of the place was great. The layout of the campus, with all of the classes really close together and being close to the beach is a bonus.

Notable: Kelsey has started in the infield for three years at Garner, manning second base as a freshman and a sophomore before shifting over to shortstop last season. She will likely be used at first as a utility infielder at UNCW. ... One of her most rewarding moments with the Trojan program is an older memory: making the varsity squad as a freshman. But her two triple game in a win over East Wake last season is a really solid highlight as well. I just played a really good game overall, she recalled. ... Championships were also a part of her fall season at Garner as a member of the Trojans GNRC volleyball championship squad. ... Kelsey values the growth shes experienced at Garner. The whole game, every game is a learning experience, she said. You want to learn something new every game and I really feel like we do that here.
