Brianna Harvey of La Porte City Union High School has signed a national letter of intent to attend Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) and play volleyball.
Harvey is the second La Porte City Union player to commit to DMACC for the 2017-18 school year, joining teammate Peyton Parker who committed in December.
Harvey said DMACC’s size and the warm welcome she received from members of the volleyball team were factors in her decision.
“Academics are also very important to me and as a student going into nursing, I felt I needed to find (a school) that was accredited,” Harvey said. “DMACC has everything I need. I have also watched DMACC volleyball for many yeas and wanted to be a part of their success.”
Harvey said her goal is to become a registered nurse through the DMACC nursing program and then transfer to a four-year college or university and earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing.
Harvey helped the Knights to a 40-5 record and a second-place finish in the Class 3A State Volleyball Tournament in 2016. She finished the season with 162 kills and a .305 hitting percentage with her 162 kills coming from 331 attacks with 61 hitting errors. Harvey also finished the season with a team-high 143 blocks, including 89 block assists.
Harvey is also president of the school’s Future Business Leaders of American program.
