    Kaitlyn Rollins, a 2015 Marion County High School graduate, has signed to join the St. Catharine College Patriot volleyball program.

At Marion County, she was a familiar face on the honor roll.
     “It’s always great to be able to keep the local talent close to home,” Patriot Coach Jason McDannold said. “You can never have enough kids from the surrounding counties.”
