Ray, who played the last two years in a Lady Red
uniform and was instrumental in taking the Lady Red to its first District 2-AAA regular season and
tournament championships in over 20 years this past season, said that picking Virginia Intermont
seemed like a good fit for her.

"It just seems like a good fit
and I feel like I should go up there," Ray said.
