CRESTVIEW —Crestview High School senior Kerrie York fulfilled a longtime dream Wednesday morning as she signed scholarship papers to play at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala.

The scholarship is worth $42,000 annually.

The 6-foot-1 inch York averaged 12.4 points, 8.9 rebound and 2.4 assists per game last season while shooting 85 percent from the free throw line as a Bulldog post player.

Easy decision

York, who also considered The University of Mobile and Webber International in Babson Park, said Spring Hill was the best fit.

"It was kind of close to home, but not too close," she said. "I went on tour a few weeks ago and I fell in love with it. It was really nice.

“And I felt like I would fit in there when I went to work out with their team during the tryout and was playing with their returning players."
