Rose Hill senior Autumn Lipscomb went to a practice with Neosho's basketball coaches. They started her as a post player, but that didn't last long.
"He did have me as a post player, then he saw me shoot, and he said 'Now you're my number one shooting guard," Lipscomb said.
Lipscomb has been a great scorer for the Rockets' girls basketball team for four seasons. Now she is getting the opportunity to continue her career at Neosho County Community College.
"It's awesome. I'm so excited for next year," Lipscomb said.
Lipscomb earned Second Team All-League honors this past season and earned Honorable Mention the year before. Rose Hill coach Jenny Page knows she can be very successful at the next level.
"She's a good scorer. At the end of the season for us, she was unstoppable for two or three games. As a coach, you notice that pretty much right away," Page said.
Lipscomb's teammates voted her as the MVP at the Rockets' award night recently. She led the team in scoring.
"She's had a great four years here. We're sad to see her leave, obviously, but she's wanted to play at the next level, and she's got the skills for it," Page said.
"I love every second of it. Coach Paige is one of the best coaches I've ever had," Lipscomb said.
Lipscomb plans to study Neo-natal nursing in school.
Her parents are Danny and Lisa Lipscomb.
