Blountstown Senior Signs With Gulf Coast Volleyball

Blountstown, FL (WJHG/WECP) Blountstown senior volleyball star Emma Richards will stay relatively close to home to continue her academic and athletic careers. Richards signing a scholarship offer with coach Allen and the Gulf Coast volleyball program Tuesday.

Richards certainly has the talent to be a big time Division One player, but at 6 foot even, many scouts felt she isn't tall enough perhaps to play up front at that level.

Emma seems the type to prove folks who doubt her wrong. And it's a good bet Gulf Coast will certainly make good use of her talents!

Richards led the Tigers this season with 445 kills, adding 35 aces, 44 blocks and 101 digs.

She helped the team post a 22-6 record and reach the 1A state semifinals, losing to eventual state champ Sneads in that round.
