Keeley and Kayla Norris aren't finished playing along side one another just yet.

The Norris sisters signed their letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers at Texas A&M-Commerce in Commerce, Texas.

"Assisting and allowing young people to achieve their dreams is something we really want to focus on here at Liberty-Eylau," Liberty-Eylau athletic director Klint King said. "Anytime we can give them an example of someone who has come before them and achieved their goals, we want them to see that. We want to promote that as much as possible. At the end of the day, that's ultimately what we want for these kids."

The Norrises have been constants on the Lady Leopards varsity teams, both being named four-year lettermen in track, volleyball, softball and basketball.

"It feels really great to finally sign," Kayla Norris said. "Being able to sign with my sister is the best thing ever, I don't think I could live without Keeley to be honest. She's always there and she's my best friend. We're like a package deal."

The sisters will play softball and run track in Commerce for the Lady Lions.

"It's a great feeling that my sister signed with me so we can be together throughout college," Keeley Norris said. "It was the plan from the beginning, we just had to finish it. Playing here at Liberty-Eylau has had a lasting effect on me, it made me into the person I am today."
