Richlands Seniors Cassidy Richardson and MaKenley Davis have done almost everything together for the past four years...

Signing to play collegiate athletics is just as special as winning a state championship for most high schoolers.

Monday, the two girls signed their letters of intent to play college soccer at the University of Pikeville.

"The coaches are great so, I think we're prepared to go to the next level," said Richardson. "I'm ready to play at the collegiate level. We've had a lot of expereince here," added Davis.

Richardson and Davis were two sport athletes at Richlands.

Both were members of the final four basketball teams the past two seasons and are now one win away from a southwest district title as members of the soccer team.

"It's good to have someone that you're close with to go and do the things you love", said Davis.

"We just wanted to further our educations and when we visited Pikeville we just loved it up there. So we're honored to play the sport that we love and further our educations," said Richardson.
