The event, set Feb. 22 at The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, is an annual celebration of athletic achievement hosted by the Nashville Sports Council.
A four-year starter for the Lady Bears, Williams needs only 11 points tonight vs. Hendersonville High to reach the 2,500 point mark in her career.
She recently passed former six-on-six star Sheila Johansson’s (2,483 career points) to become the program’s all-time leading scorer. The MTSU signee will finish her four-year career averaging more than 20 ppg.
“Caya has been the backbone of our team for four years,” said MJ head coach Chris Fryer. “She’s been a difference maker every night out. When you’ve got someone with her skill set down low, it opens up the rest of the floor. We’ve been blessed to have her in our program.”
Williams was a Class AAA Miss Basketball finalist last season and is expected to be in the running for the award again this year.
