Stephenville High School senior Jayci Morton took advantage of the early signing period for high school athletes after selecting Tarleton State University. Morton signed a letter-of-intent earlier this week to play basketball at Tarleton State University.

Morton, a 5-10 forward for SHS coach Alan Thorpe’s Honeybees, has earned all-district honors the past two seasons, and was an all-state and all-region selection her sophomore year.

Morton visited East Texas Baptist University and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor before deciding to join the TexAnns, noting, “I always wanted to play at Tarleton.” She said that she expects to major in kinesiology.

Morton also earned all-district volleyball honors for the second year in a row after the close of the 2018 season.
