(Park Hills) A tremendous multi-sport athlete for Central will be staying close to home as she moves on to play at the next level.
Kaley Kimball signed recently to play volleyball at Mineral Area College.
She says she has always been drawn to being a Cardinal.
As great as Kimball is on the volleyball court, she is equally capable on the basketball hardwood and has been a staple of both teams over the past few years.
For the Lady Rebels basketball team this year, she averaged 17 points and 7 rebounds per game, earned her second-straight All-Conference and third-straight All-District selections, and helped lead the team to their third-straight district championship.
Volleyball or basketball?
That was the question Kimball had to answer, and she says it was one of the toughest choices she has ever had to make.
Kimball is a decorated athlete across both sports and is also a perennial winner.
However, she says all the accolades and team successes are made truly special by having had the opportunity to do it in a Rebels uniform.
In her senior year with the Central volleyball team, Kimball compiled 346 kills, 63 total blocks with 21 solo and 42 assisted, earned her second-straight All-Conference and All-District selections, her first All-State selection, and helped lead the Lady Rebels to a (27-6-3) record and a 2nd Place finish in Class 3.
She joins a MAC volleyball team that finished the 2020-21 season at (15-10).
