LaGrange to play for Mighty OaksMay 14, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
LINCOLN CITY — Small colleges will likely soon find out what local high schools have known for years: Kaebra LaGrange is a menace from wherever she’s stationed on the floor.
The Heritage Hills senior signed Thursday to continue her volleyball career at Oakland City University, where she’s likely to satisfy the same role she did for the Patriots. Over the last four years, Heritage Hills went 89-35 with a sectional title in 2010 as LaGrange multitasked as both a setter and hitter.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to be doing both,” LaGrange said of her expected role with the Mighty Oaks, who run a 6-2 offense in which LaGrange can flip between the duties. “I loved doing that in high school, and that’s my favorite part about (the sport), is doing both.”
LaGrange mulled a handful of other options where she could extend her volleyball career. But all were a significant distance from home. Oakland City’s proximity won out, and LaGrange, a Class 3A all-state selection as a senior who plans to major in biology at OCU, found a comfortable fit less than an hour from home.
“It had always kind of been an option for me, and I really liked the school and everything. I knew if I went there I’d have a great support system, and that I’d have my family and teammates and coaches come watch me,” said LaGrange, the daughter of John and Tammy LaGrange of Santa Claus. “It had a Christian atmosphere, too, which I really liked about that. I felt like it was the best fit for me.”
