RCHS star signs with community college

Russell County High School volleyball star Niki Davis has signed with a letter of intent with Jefferson Davis Community College in Brewton, Ala. The All Bi-City middle hitter for Miranda Griggs’ Lady Warriors decided to go with Jeff Davis, signing her letter of intent Thursday in the RCHS library.

“I like Faulkner’s campus better, but Jeff Davis offered me more money for school,” said Davis, who becomes just the second volleyball player from the program to sign a college scholarship.

Griggs said Davis’ signing was good for both the player and the school, considering Russell County didn’t have a girls volleyball program until the coach’s arrival seven years ago.
