Lincoln, IL - Lilly Pickett, a 6'0" senior from Mt. Pulaski High School, has signed a Letter of Intent to continue her athletic career at Lincoln Christian University (LCU) in both volleyball and basketball.

In high school, Pickett was a multi-sport standout who played four years of varsity volleyball and three years of basketball for the Hilltoppers.

Pickett helped her volleyball team achieve winning seasons all four years, advancing to the Elite 8 this past fall as a senior as well as finishing State Runner-up her freshman year. Although sitting out her senior year in basketball, Pickett showed great potential as a back-to-the-basket low post player, which is an area of immediate need for the Red Lions women's basketball team.

"I'm thrilled Lilly has decided to attend LCU" said Head Women's Basketball Coach Christian Lowry. "She will give us some much needed depth in the post position but even more than that I'm excited because I know the type of person that Lilly is. She has overcome a lot in life, and always seems to have a smile on her face. High character individuals like Lilly are exactly the type of student-athletes our program is looking for."

Head Volleyball Coach Dave Donnelly echoed much of what Lowry had to say about Pickett, and stated "Lilly will be a good fit with our team. We are excited that Lilly has decided to become a Red Lion!"

Picket signed her Letter of Intent on May 23 with Coach Lowry as well as family and friends in attendance. Upon signing, Pickett said "I'm excited to continue playing basketball and volleyball at LCU and to be surrounded by people with similar interests."
