Vol State in the News

Vol State alumna and former basketball player Felicia Grinter is headed to London for the Olympics. She'll be a referee- the only American ref for women's basketball in London. The former Lady Pioneer point guard is considered to be one of the top refs in the country, as the Olympics spot reflects.

Channel 5 has the story: http://www.newschannel5.com/story/19077854/nashville-referee-goes-to-the-olympics
