Kasey Kidwell '18 Signs to Division I Basketball
The Carolina Day School community gathered on campus to celebrate NCAA Division I recruit Kasey Kidwell ’18, who has signed with Austin Peay State University in Tennessee. A 5’8” guard for the Wildcats, Kidwell earned numerous honors her junior year, including CAA All-Conference Honors and NCISAA 2A All-State Honors. She was also named a member of the Asheville Citizen-Times All-WNC basketball team. Additionally, Kidwell helped lead the Wildcats to their seventh consecutive NCISAA 2A basketball title this past season.
“Kasey finished the summer with 12 Division I offers in five different states,” said Assistant Coach Jennie West. “It was really exciting…but she’s the kind of girl who knows what she wants and wrapped it up quickly, because she knew where she wanted to go, as soon as she made her connections.”
“As a basketball player, her accomplishments are many:  All-State, All-WNC, All-Conference—pretty much ‘All-Everything" on a basketball court,” said Director of Athletics Steve Henry. “Academically, as her teachers will tell you, the growth she has shown in this student-centered environment has been exceptional. …There’s no doubt that she will continue that good work both on the court and in the classroom at Austin Peay.”
