Amber Ramsey will be taking her talents to Our Lady of the Lake University to play Volleyball as she signed on the dotted line Wednesday afternoon in the Hawk Gym.

This was a first on many fronts for Canyon Lake as this was the first signing in the afternoon, but more impressive, was Head Coach Mark Lee for OLLU was in attendance for this occasion.

Two things that has not happened until this day, showing how important a student and player Ramsey was and will become.

Ramsey has been around for what seems to be ages as she showcased her skills as a Freshman through her Senior year for the Hawks.

Her height allowed her to show off her play at the net for her career and now that talent will be on display in San Antonio next year.

The Saints finished with a 9-4 Conference Record last season losing in the Semifinals for the Red River Athletic Conference to finish their season.

Last year’s OLLU team had no Seniors playing and so this will certainly be a team to watch next season which has to be a challenge for Ramsey that will be met with vigor.

“I want to reach goals that will impact other people,” Ramsey said when asked what her goals for OLLU as well as Canyon Lake were. “The College game will be a lot faster pace and I’m very competitive and look forward to the challenge.”

Ramsey also had her Sister, Mom, Grandmother and Dad in attendance for this momentous occasion.

Shawna Ramsey said that she looked forward to seeing her ‘little’ sister and that they would be rooming together.

Mom was all smiles as she talked about her daughter, “She has always been athletic and Volleyball has always been her sport. I am very proud and Amber worked very hard and was dedicated and missed many functions to play volleyball.”

“She got her height form Dad and her looks from me,” Mom said with no seconds thoughts.

“I am very proud as she has become a young woman and I hope her dedication continues with her education, Dad said like a Peacock. “I am also proud of how she is making decisions and I wish her all the luckā€¦ she has all the love that her Father can have with this young lady.”

Of course her Grandmother also chimed in, “Amber was a delightful grandchild,” Ginny Kite said flying high.

Amber will be missed as The ReSporter has covered and looked up to this student (literally) for 4 years in Volleyball, Basketball, and Track.

Good Luck and do well in life, Amber.
