Concord's Wilson signs with Washington State

Heather Wilson, a senior at Concord High School, has committed to play volleyball at Washington State University, where she will major in pre-veterinary medicine. Wilson was featured in the first issue of the Cabarrus News.

A 6-foot setter, Heather has been accepted for early admittance to WSU and will begin classes in January 2010. Wilson is a four-year volleyball letter-winner at Concord, where she was player of the year in 2008 and again this year for the South Piedmont

"(Heather) will have the opportunity to lead this team as a freshman setter and I am confident that with hard work and preparation Heather will continue the momentum that we gained during the 2009 season," said Washington State head coach Andrew Palileo.
