Salter Signs With Dallas College-Brookhaven Volleyball
Cedar Hill High School middle blocker Asia Salter was one of four seniors who engineered the beginning of the program’s turnaround last fall.
“I was glad to help set the foundation for the future of the program,” said Salter, who signed with Dallas College-Brookhaven’s Volleyball Program on Wednesday afternoon, surrounded by family and friends.
Under the direction of first-year head coach Amanda Blackney, Cedar Hill went 20-19, achieving its first 20-win season since 2017. The Lady Longhorns defeated Duncanville for the first time in six years, on Senior Night.
Salter is the first Cedar Hill Volleyball Player to sign with a college program during the Blackney Era.
“This is like sending your first baby to college,” Blackney said. “I hope she comes back to visit Cedar Hill to see what she started. This is a huge accomplishment, and I’m very proud of her.”
Salter knew that Brookhaven was a great fit, when she visited the campus in Farmers Branch.
“I went on a visit and felt in my heart, it’s where I should be,” Salter said.
The Bears have reached the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III Semifinals 13 of the past 18 years, with four championships and four runner-up finishes.
Brookhaven coach Jason Hopkins had a chance to watch Salter play club volleyball for Dallas Premiere and was confident that she could make an immediate and considerable impact for the program.
“She’ll help our team right away,” Hopkins said.
