Lauren Willson didn’t take much time contemplating the next step in her volleyball career. The Tonganoxie High senior signed a National Letter of Intent this last Thursday to play volleyball at Hutchinson Community College. “When I went for the campus visit, I just kind of fell in love with it,” she said. HCC also is just right in terms of distance — a three-hour drive is not too close to home, but not halfway across the country, either.
