Robinson's Bailey to play volleyball at LTC
Yet another Robinson High School athlete has committed to their athletic career at the next level, but the latest has done so in their sport for the first time in quite some time.

Senior Sydni Bailey signed her letter-of-intent earlier this week to play volleyball at Lincoln Trail College next season.

"I am so happy to be able to further my volleyball career," Bailey said. "Volleyball has been a major part of my life and I enjoy it very much. I hope to bve around it the rest of my life."

With her signing, Bailey becomes the first RHS player to earn a scholarship to play in college during head coach Eric Dean's tenure.

"It is great to be able to have kids play at the next level, especially when they can stay in the community," Dean said. "LTC is not only getting a good player, but a good kid."
