Mahaffay to become a Prairie Star this fall

Kellee Mahaffay, an outside hitter who had a team-high 255 kills last season for Coal City's volleyball team, is heading to the University of Illinois at Springfield.

Mahaffay, a social work major with a minor in elementary education, will be playing volleyball for the Prairie Stars in the fall. She fell in love with UIS on her visit there.

"UIS had a gorgeous campus, the coach had a real bubbly personality and I liked the girls," Mahaffay said.

Mahaffay's choice was featured in a August 3, 2010, article by Free Press Newspapers.
