The rest of the Lady Eagles' signees include; Teammates Adrienne Aumell (Sevierville, Tenn./Sevier Co.) and Alexis Connor (Sevierville, Tenn./Sevier Co.), Alex Pinger (Hendersonville, Tenn./Hendersonville), Jenna Bryan (Salisbury, N.C./Salisbury), Christine Fail (Concord, N.C./Cox Mill), Sidnee Edwards (Knoxville, Tenn./Karns), Whitney Curtis (Lake Mary Fla./Lake Mary Prep.), Noelle Morgano (Greenville, S.C./Wade Hampton), and Tandy Turk (Demorest, Ga./Habersham Central).
