LAMOILLE — Shiela Browning had strong seasons in both volleyball and basketball for LaMoille/Ohio and had opportunities to play both sports. In the end, she chose volleyball.

The Lady Lions standout signed to play volleyball for Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon. She said she liked the atmosphere at Sauk.

“It’s a much laid back and comfortable school. I’ve been to quite a few open gyms with the team and the atmosphere they create in the gym is very exciting,” she said.

L/O coach Hallie May is excited to see Browning get a chance to continue to play and said she’s worked for it.

“I’m just proud of her accomplishments and the example she sets to the other girls in our program. Shiela put in the time during regular season and in offseason in order to reach her goals,” May said. “I will miss her and have no doubts she will excel on and off the volleyball court at Sauk.”

Browning plans to study nursing at Sauk. She said she also considered IVCC.

Browning, a unanimous Little Ten All-Conference selection, shared 2014 BCR Player of the Year Honors with Princeton’s Michelle Kelly, who has signed to continue her volleyball career for Illinois Central College.
