Franklin volleyball star Sophia Chacon signed her letter of intent to play at UTEP on Monday afternoon.
Chacon helped lead the Cougars on a long playoff run as a senior, and was impressed by the Miners’ new coach, Ben Wallis.
“I heard about Ben Wallis becoming the new head coach at UTEP and it just made that decision so much easier,” Chacon said. “I’ve seen him coach before and he seems to have the potential and love for the game that it makes me want to play even more.”
Chacon hopes to get immediate playing time for the Miners next season.
