MADISON, Fla. (WTXL) - The Madison County girls basketball team couldn't have finished their season any better. The Cowgirls ran away with the Class 1A State Championship, their first in school history.

Madison County boasted nine seniors on that team, and on Friday, one of them signed to continue her career at the next level. Tamiera Mobley inked with Young Harris, a Division II school in northern Georgia on Friday in front of family and friends.

Mobley averaged close to 15 points per game for the Cowgirls this year, and led the team in made three pointers, sinking 93 on the season. Mobley said having the chance to play basketball in college is the perfect ending to the perfect year.

"It's a dream come true. I've been dreaming about this since I was in 7th grade, just ever since I picked up a basketball," she said. "It's an amazing opportunity and I'm not going to take it for granted. They just made me feel like I was at home, and that's all I can ask for in a college, in a basketball program is to make me feel at home and like family. The people there are great so I really enjoyed myself."

Mobley said she wants to study to eventually become a physical therapist.
