ONA — Cabell Midland High School softball player Kirya Kingery signed a letter of commitment Friday to continue her career at Morehead State University.

Kingery is diabetic but has not allowed that to limit her athletic skills. She has played point guard on the basketball team and shortstop while wearing an insulin pump to control the disease.

Her high school head coach, Herman Beckett, said Kingery is a smart player who has better range than anybody he’s coached.

“I think Morehead State got the steal of the century,” Beckett said. “I say that because she’s the best ballplayer in the state of West Virginia.”
