Prattville Christian Academy is proud to announce that Naomi Taake signed a Letter of Intent to play volleyball with Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Georgia. She is the fifth player to join a collegiate team in the school’s program and continue her volleyball career while advancing her education.
Naomi is an Outside Hitter for the Lady Panthers. During her high school volleyball career, she earned 115 kills, 20 assists, 16 blocks, 210 digs, and 31 aces. She was an integral part of the 2020 history-making season as the Lady Panthers advanced deeper into postseason play than ever before and gave it all she had during her senior season this year when the team was consistently ranked in the area’s top teams.
“Naomi is one of the most dedicated players I have ever coached,” said Kaylon Cantrell, PCA’s head volleyball coach. “Not only is she a skilled player, but she also knows and understands the game well. I’m so excited to watch her continue to grow as an athlete and young woman in this next chapter of her life.”
Naomi has put in the work needed both in and out of season for many years to make this dream a reality. She had a tough season-ending knee injury, but that didn’t stop her from being the team’s biggest cheerleader and supporter! Naomi continued to attend practices and games in support of her teammates as the team’s unofficial “hype girl.” She was honored with the team’s Panther Spirit Award this year which is given to one player for their spirit, support, and encouragement during the season.
As a new Baron, she will play in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics as a part of the Southern States Athletic Conference. In addition to her athletic affiliations, Naomi will become a part of the rich Christian heritage of Brewton-Parker College, a private Baptist college founded in 1904.
