Star Point Guard for the Red River Lady Bulldogs will become a Lady Cav. Morgyn Payne on Wednesday signed an athletic scholarship with Bossier Parish Community College.
Payne was flanked by family and friends as she signed her name to the scholarship. In a mid-day ceremony in the Red River Gym, Athletic Director Norman Picou got things started with introductions. Her coaches heaped on the praise and good luck wishes. Teammates and fellow students looked on and cheered.
Then Payne took the microphone to thank everyone and humbly accept BPCC’s offer.
Afterwards there were photos, hugs, congratulations all around. The students were dismissed to the cafeteria for their lunch break. Family and friends were treated to a buffet of finger food and a scrumptious cake with lots of gooey icing.
Payne had just come off her first district win against Winnfield the night before. And Friday she will be back on the court as the Many Lady Tigers come to town.
