Cair Paravel's Taryn Pridgett signs with Washburn volleyball

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A Cair Paravel star is staying close to home.

On Wednesday, Taryn Pridgett signed a letter of intent to play for Washburn volleyball. A couple months ago, she said she probably would not have chosen to stay so close to home.

"I was probably like no, too close to home," Pridgett said. "I want to get away. I want to live life on my own and just kind of spread my wings and fly. But I think after I visited the campus and I met some of the girls and the coaches, it was the perfect place and the perfect time."
