STEPHENVILLE - It only took two seasons for Kenya Alexander to forever etch her name into the Tarleton history books.

She finished her career as a two-time first-team All-Lone Star Conference selection, one of the first AVCA all-region players in school history, the 2014 Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Year, and was responsible for landing the final kill against Metro State in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Regional Tournament to secure Tarleton's first national playoff victory.

Now she's representing Tarleton at the professional level after signing a contract with Kula-Gradacac in the Bosnian Premier League.

"I feel like all of my hard work has finally paid off and this is a new start to a new chapter in my life," said Alexander. "There's no way I could be here if it weren't for my time at Tarleton. Coach Schindler helped me in every aspect of volleyball and the support of our team was crazy. I will definitely miss it."

According the Tarleton records, she becomes the first TexAnn volleyball player to continue her playing career at the professional level. In the 1970's, Tarleton's Mary Steed was drafted to play professional volleyball but declined due to the newly-developed league's instability.

Alexander finished her career with over 500 kills and over 350 total blocks in two seasons as she helped Tarleton win the 2014 LSC Tournament Championship and 2015 LSC regular season title, both of which were the first in school history. In each of Alexander's two seasons, Tarleton qualified for the NCAA postseason for the first time in school history as well.
