VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — A high school senior is making history as Valdosta High School's first Wildcat Volleyball star to play at the collegiate level.

Kemari Smith, Valdosta High School senior, signed a letter of intent to play for Gulf Coast State College.

Smith is breaking barriers for Valdosta Volleyball, paving the way for future athletes in her sport.

"I remember Kemari trying out as an upcoming sophomore, having never played volleyball before," said Coach Anna McCall. "I remember immediately thinking, 'Wow, she is going to be good!' Here we are three seasons later and two club seasons with PSVA, she's made all region A team twice. Her senior season she had 50 percent of the blocks and 25 percent of kills for our team."
