KIMBERLY, Idaho (KMVT / KSVT) – A pair of best friends signed together at Kimberly High School on Monday, though their future institutions are in different states.
Reece Garey and Madison Smith made their plans known in front of a large rally in the high school cafeteria.
Garey joins the Lewis-Clark State College golf program. Kimberly’s first-ever Women’s State Champion is hoping to return twice in a row and possibly win a 3A Tag Team Championship this year as well.
“I was really looking for a competitive golf program when I was looking for college and found this out from Lewis and Clark and I’m very happy to contribute to their golf program,” Garey explained.
Meanwhile, Smith signed with Masters University in Santa Clarita, California. The soccer player has helped her Bulldogs win the High Desert Conference Championship and qualify for three of the past four years.
“So it’s actually a private Christian college, so it’s a big part of my life,” Smith said. “So I’m super excited, the coach is very nice, the girls are kind and welcoming. I am very excited about this part. It was a very warm community, so even though it was far from home, it’s like a new family to me so. “
Both schools compete in the NAIA.
