Mitchell, who has also been nominated to be the Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year, will sign with Lees-McRae on Wednesday, the first day of the fall signing period. Mitchell will begin playing with Lees-McRae as a freshman in the fall of 2009.

Lees-McRae is a Division III power having won 10 straight Conference Carolinas titles and have made numerous NCAA Tournament appearances.

“Megan has a solid chance to walk in to the gym next fall and make an impact,” Lees-McRae coach Jamie Petrik said. “She will not only bring an excellent skill set with her but also the experience of playing for a championship team.

“We recruit strong players who understand college is not just about sports ” it is about academics. Megan is prepared for college, she know how to take care of the books and understands that volleyball is an added bonus to the overall college experience.”
