Chloe Bennett, Dawson County volleyball Region 7-AAA Player of the Year, signed her letter of intent to continue her career at Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia.
Though Bennett officially signed in March, the school had to cancel her event due to COVID-19 concerns. Bennett and her family celebrated the accomplishment this past weekend.
“I am extremely blessed and thankful for the opportunity to get to further my academic and athletic career at Brenau University,” Bennett said.
The fast-paced energy side of volleyball is what Bennett said is her favorite part of the game.
Brenau Head Coach Michael Carter said in an interview with the university that Bennett should expect to compete for playing time very early in her career.
“Chloe will help us solidify a core group of outside hitters,” Carter said. “We’re thrilled to welcome Chloe to the Brenau family.”
Bennett, daughter of Todd and Kendy Bennett, said she is excited to not just continue playing volleyball but to make new friends along the way.
Though she’ll move down the road to Gainesville, she says she’ll always call Dawsonville home.
“Dawsonville means so much to me,” Bennett said. “It has been where I have grown up and it and the people in it have shaped me into who I am today.”
