When it comes to basketball, Richmond Hill High School senior Sydney Millek is no slacker.
"She works 10 times harder than anyone I've ever met," RHHS girls' coach Elizabeth Bennett said.
Millek's hard work paid off Thursday, when the senior signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Brewton Parker College in Mount Vernon.
"I feel like it's a perfect fit," Millek said. "It has a real homey feel, I loved the coaches and it's not that far from my family."
Millek, who wants to study physical therapy, thanked teammates, coaches and her family for their support.
Bennett said the signing is a dream come true for her player, who helped lead the Wildcats to a 24-2 mark, a No. 7 state ranking and a Region 2-AAAA title, with the possibility of more to come as Richmond Hill played host to Bainbridge in the first-round of the Class AAAA tourney on Friday night.
"No one deserves this more than she does," Bennett said. "If you know Sydney, you know how much she loves basketball. It's unfortunate for us that she's moving on, but we're excited that she's going to be able to continue her dream."
