“I love the coach at Limestone and I already know two of the girls on the team,” Bowles said. “Overall, I just felt really comfortable there.”

“I first saw Ashton play when she was 10 years old,” Greenbrier head coach Wes Kendrick said. “She’s meant so much to our program and I’m expecting big things from her again this season.”
