Holladay • Youth was served, particularly that of Audrey Green, when Intermountain Christian School celebrated its first full-ride athletic scholarship recipient in 35 years of history.
Green signed a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Westminster College after a high school career with the Lions that has landed her in several all-time Utah statistics categories.
The private school, started in 1982, celebrated the signing with remarks of praise, cake and a video of Green's highlights. That included footage of Green, then a fifth-grader in the same gym where Wednesday's event took place, serving underhand in youth games.
"I loved it so much. I helped my dad do it, but he spent a lot of time on the finished product," said Green, who had an audience including family members, her team and a good portion of the ICS student body. "It was so fun hearing the crowd's reaction. I didn't know they would do that, but that's how they were cheering at the games."
