Lady Cats Volleyball star Sadie Washburn signed a letter of intent to play volleyball for Dallas Baptist University during an signing event Wednesday morning in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs High School. Washburn has been on the varsity for three years.
She said she talked with a lot of colleges but she said her dad recommended DBU. Washburn said the DBU coach saw her play and that led to a visit. Washburn said she got to practice with the Patriots’ team and later the coach gave her an offer. She called the Dallas campus gorgeous.
Washburn said the coach has not discussed a specific position for her but she says she can play any of them. Her favorite is outside hitter, where she says she gets to do a bit of everything. Washburn said she wants to play as a freshman.
She said she plays with emotion. She likes to get very excited when the team earns a point. She takes senior leadership seriously.
Washburn said older girls took her under their wings when she began on the varsity as a sophomore. She said she wants the younger players to look up to her. Washburn said he started playing volleyball in the 7th grade. She also played some soccer and was a member of the band.
Her future plans include majoring in biology to become a doctor. She said she is still working to firm up her plans.
