Brookland's Sandborn signs with Lyon College

BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) - A solid force on Brookland's Volleyball Team will be graduating this month but her volleyball days aren't over just yet.

Madison Sandborn will be firing kills for the Lyon College Scots in the upcoming season after signing her letter of intent to play volleyball for the Scots on Monday.

Sandborn has been a significant mis-match to opposing defenses as a big hitter for the Bearcats the past four seasons. Lyon College Head Coach Ray Green will enjoy having that power on his end in his 7th season as Lyon volleyball coach.

"It was a lot of hard work and it was fun," said Sandborn when asked about her work towards becoming a collegiate athlete, "The fact that I thought I could play at this level and I finally made it, it's so much fun and I can't wait."

Sandborn will join a Scots team that went 13-22 in 2014 with a 5-7 record in the American Midwest Conference. Not only will Madison be staying in Region 8 at Lyon College in Batesville, the Scots will have road games at Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge.
