Kelsey Munn with family, friends and coaches signs to play college basketball
Brown and Munn each played pivotal roles this past season for the Lady Raiders as Munn led the team in blocked shots while Brown was the leading scorer. Both ladies returned for their senior season of basketball after sitting out their sophomore and junior seasons. Each expressed the family atmosphere they felt at Motlow as well as the opportunity to play close to home as deciding factors. Brown said she will miss the memories of playing with the close friends she made in high school ball while Munn looks forward to the challenge of elevating her game to the college level. Motlow is currently accepting applications for a new women’s basketball coach and Athletic Director Tori Raby-Gentry oversaw the recruitment and signing of the 2 Lady Raiders. Raby-Gentry stated that the Lady Bucks hope to have a new coach in place by the middle of June to a team that returns a majority of their roster.
