Former Booneville volleyball standout Aleeah Blansett took another step forward in her career last Wednesday when she signed a letter of intent to play at Ferrum College in Virginia.

Blansett, who currently plays for Seminole State College in Oklahoma, put her name on the dotted line on the same day that the school conducted Sophomore Day activities.

A middle hitter, Blansett has been unable to play this season due to ankle surgery, but will still continue her volleyball journey.

While playing for Booneville from 2017-19, Blansett set six Ladycat records, including a clean sweep of the records for kills in a match, season and career. The six-footer also owns the career record for blocks and the season records for attack percent and kill percent. A very versatile player, Blansett is also among the top 10 career in digs and was able to get the ball up over 70% of the time.

Ferrum College is an NCAA Division III school located in Ferrum, Va., near Roanoke. The Panthers compete in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
