BOONE — On National Signing Day earlier this November, Watauga High School senior Caroline Farthing committed to play volleyball Appalachian State University and to play volleyball for the Mountaineers.

“I was originally offered a commitment from (former App State volleyball head coach) Matt Ginipro,” Farthing said. “And then last year Sarah Noble was hired and I was nervous at first. I was thinking like ‘OK, she can do whatever she wants, she could pull my offer.’ But then she called me in and reassured me, and said, ‘We still would love to have you here.”
