BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - You probably know Morgan Garnett from the basketball court. The Bell County Lady Bobcat is in her senior year.

"Basketball's been great. I've played basically my whole life. It always keeps me entertained. I just love it," Garnett said.

She is known for her three point shooting and her leadership on the team.

"Like if we have a bad practice or something, I just try and step up, you know, clapping and getting them going, just say come on guys, let's go," she said.

When she is not on the court, she is busy in the classroom. The National Honor Society member takes several AP classes and is also involved in several clubs, including Beta and Key Club.

"It keeps you busy, and it keeps you always with something to do. There's never a dull moment or a bored moment. You're always doing something," she said.

For her leadership on and off the court, she received a Mountain Classic Committee Leadership Scholarship at the WYMT Whayne Supply Mountain Basketball Classic.

"I was just so excited. I was hoping I was going to get it, but I was just really shocked. I didn't think I would but I was excited," she said.

She has not decided where to go to college yet, but she says the scholarship will help wherever she goes.

She also wants to play basketball in college.

She has not decided on a career yet.
