It's a great day for Grand Island Northwest star athlete McKenzie Brown who signed with coach Kevin Chaney's UNK Loper basketball team to play college ball.
McKenzie,who'll start her senior season when the games begin in a few weeks led the Vikings to a state championship last season..
She is a woman of few words always letting her play do the talking.
"Yeah a great day for a great athlete. I'm so glad she's a great part of our program and I really think a year from now those at UNK don't know what a great teammate they are going to have. said coach Mike Herzberg
I'm really looking forward to going to play for coach Chaney at UNK, I've met the players and I'm looking forward to going over there and along with the other players turning things around, said McKenzie Brown.
Also and outstanding volleyball player, McKenzie and the Vikings were upset by the Norris Titans in the Class B Semi–Finals Friday.
The Vikings were hoping for back to back state titles but came up just short.
