Motlow Lady Bucks head coach Aaron Holland has announced that Huntland High School post Alexis Smith has signed to continue her basketball career at Motlow College. Smith is a 6-0 post who averaged 17.8 points, 8.6 rebounds, over two steals and 1.4 blocked shots per game as a senior at the Franklin County school. She scored over 1,500 points during her career and was voted to the All-District 9A regular season and tournament team.
"Alexis brings some much needed size and scoring to our team. She flew under the radar all year long and we were fortunate to build a relationship with her and her family and get her to sign at Motlow. She can go as high as she wants to go with her size, skill, and physicality. Her ability to finish around the basket and play physical is something we lacked last season, and she will help us fill a void in that area next year."

Motlow Lady Bucks head coach Aaron Holland has announced that Montgomery Central High School post Andi LaPietra has signed to continue her basketball career at Motlow College. LaPietra is a 6-1 center who averaged 7 points, five rebounds and two blocked shots per game as a senior at the Clarksville school.
"Andi is an athletic post player who was a two-sport athlete at Montgomery Central," said Holland. "Because of her volleyball background she is able to block and alter a lot of shots. Now that she can focus solely on basketball at Motlow she has the potential to be an incredible player for us."
