PRINCETON, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Lady Golden Bears picked up their latest recruit at PikeView high school on Monday.
Senior Laken McKinney signed on the dotted line with the support of her parents, teammates and coaches -- both present and future.
WVU Tech will graduate three post players from its NAIA national tournament team this season. But, beyond the possibility of playing time, McKinney felt most at home in the Beckley gold and blue.
"I knew they lost a lot of post players, so hopefully I can go in next year and get some minutes -- maybe do my role," she said.
I went up on a visit to West Virginia Tech and I really fell in love with the campus and the coach and I felt like it was the best fit for me," she continued.
McKinney hopes to major in accounting beginning this fall.
