Britney Bailey, star of volleyball, basketball and track and field for the Panthers of Yokota and Guam high schools the past three-plus years, will trade blue and gold for black and gold next fall as she takes her game to a higher level.

The senior middle blocker, center and hurdler has signed a National Letter of Intent and has been awarded a full scholarship to play volleyball and basketball for Anderson University, an NCAA Division II school in South Carolina.

Bailey signed her NLI during a ceremony at Yokota High School on Nov. 16. The signing ended a lengthy process of a year during which Bailey visited nine universities in six states, including the Air Force Academy and Florida State University.
