March 26th was a great day for Cerro Coso volleyball player Ashley Sherrick. Surrounded by her parents, family, coaches, friends, and staff, she signed a letter of intent with Cumberland University in Tennessee to play volleyball on a full-ride scholarship.
A native of Ridgecrest, Sherrick played city volleyball as a youth and made the varsity team as a freshman at Burroughs High School before joining the Cerro Coso Coyotes in 2013. She will move on to continue her schooling and play for the Cumberland Bulldogs in Lebanon, Tennessee.
“I’m excited I get to play volleyball at the next level,” said Sherrick. A top performer for the Coyotes, Sherrick, an outside hitter, made Foothill Athletic Conference All-Conference First Team twice and received a nod from the conference’s coaches by ranking in the top 16 in kills per set for the State of California in 2014. Head Coach Kim Young knew she had something special in Sherrick, “We are a ‘team first’ program, but it is exciting to see the hard work pay off individually,” she said.
Congratulations and best wishes to Sherrick for a safe and successful college life on the court and in the classroom.
