Marshayla Purnell, a senior guard and forward at Grenada High School, announced she would be continuing her basketball career at Coahoma Community College next season.
“First I would like to thank God for blessing me with the ability to play the sport I love the most and allowing me to take my talent to the next level," said Purnell in making her announcement. "I would also like to thank my family, friends, coaches, trainers and all my other supporters for pushing me to becoming the best I could be."
Purnell made her announcement as the CCC Lady Tigers were in the NJCAA Tournament and finished ranked second in Region 23.
"I would also like to show appreciation to all the other coaches who saw the college player potential in me," Purnell added. "With that being said, I will be continuing my basketball and academic career at Coahoma Community College.”
