BLUEFIELD, WV (WOAY) – In Mercer County, four Bluefield High School student athletes made their college decisions official on Tuesday. All four are staying close to home.
Solomon Mitchell will play tennis at Bluefield University, while Sandraya Dickey, Beyonka Lee and Ethan Splangler will all take their talents to Bluefield State College. Dickey will continue her softball career, while Lee and Spangler will run track and field.
