Violet "Kapri" Morrow had a cake, a poster with pictures of her and her teammates and many friends and family at Wilson High School on Wednesday to say how proud they were of her.
And while she was there, she signed to play basketball at Eastern Washington University.
Morrow signed with EWU in a ceremony Wednesday at Wilson, where she finished her career as a versatile guard/forward who scored 1,027 career points and grabbed 711 rebounds.
She averaged 16.6 points per game, 8.6 rebounds, 3.4 steals and this team was named to The News Tribune’s first-team All-Area.
Morrow said she is the first from her family to get an athletic scholarship.
"It’s really special," Morrow said. "I’m a role model for my nephews and nieces. They get to follow after me."
Morrow said she was choosing between Eastern Arizona and the University of Puget Sound, but Eastern entered the scene after watching her play at the 3A state basketball tournament and scoring 22 points with nine rebounds for the 3A team in the WSGBCA senior all-state game.
"I was just excited," Morrow said of the offer from EWU. "I was like, ‘Wow, I get the chance to play Division I.’ I was just excited."
