World record holder and East Coast Nationals Alum Thursday night, Leah Church realized a dream she’s held on to for 14 years. At Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, surrounded by her family, friends, teammates and coaches, Church signed her national letter of intent to play basketball at the University of North Carolina.
She’s been a Tar Heel fan her whole life and first met UNC Head Coach Sylvia Hatchell when she was seven years old at basketball camp in Chapel Hill. Next winter, she’ll have the chance to suit up for Hatchell in Carmichael Auditorium.
“I’ve wanted to be a Tar Heel since I was four years old, since I knew what Carolina was,” Church said. “I knew I wanted to be able to play basketball there because I loved basketball even at the age of four. So it’s been forever and seven years old was as early as I could go to camp. “Obviously, the desire just kept building every year I went.”
