Cydney Thomas Becomes First Shaw Raider to Sign D1 Volleyball Scholarship
THOMAS PUT PEN TO PAPER TO PLAY AS A MIDDLE HITTER/BLOCKER AT ALABAMA STATE UNIVERSITY
Shaw High School senior Cydney Thomas signed to play volleyball at Alabama State University on Wednesday, becoming the first Raider to play Division 1 volleyball.
“It means a lot. I always wanted to come to Shaw and leave my mark,” said Thomas. “Being sown into the game, it’s such a complex game so having to learn everything it was a lot, but I did it and hard work pays off.”
Thomas began her volleyball career as a junior, and just one year later she earned first team all-region and first team all bi-city honors. The middle hitter holds a 3.9 GPA at Shaw High School and is very excited to continue her volleyball career at ASU.
