RAINSVILLE, Ala. — On Thursday, Olivia Graham of Plainview signed a national letter of intent with the University of North Alabama to play for the Lions in their 2018-19 basketball season. The signing was held at the DeKalb County Schools Coliseum with her teammates, friends, coaches, and family present.

Graham played point guard for the Class 3A Lady Bears. She was twice named the DeKalb County Player of the Year and helped lead the Bears to the Elite Eight round of the state playoffs in three of the last four seasons. Graham finished her career at Plainview as the all-time scoring leader with 2,247 career points.

Graham was a four time All-County and five time All-Area selection. She was named to the All-Area Tournament Team from 2014 to 2018 and was honored with the title of MVP of the 2017 DeKalb County Tournament.

In the 2017-18 basketball season, Graham scored more than 600 points and was named the Wendy’s High School Heisman winner.

Congratulations on your success, Olivia! Best of luck in your future endeavors!
