Two-sport twins commit to Kansas volleyball, women’s basketball

June 22, 2013


Twins Kayla and Chayla Cheadle, seniors from Rock Bridge High in Columbia, Mo., have orally committed to play volleyball and basketball at Kansas University, the Columbia Tribune reports.

Chayla, a 5-foot-11 guard, averaged 10.8 points while hitting 45 percent of her three-pointers for Rock Bridge’s Class 5 state championship team. Kayla, a 6-1 middle blocker, was named all-region as a junior. She also plays basketball.

“We wanted to go to school together,” Chayla Cheadle told the Tribune. “This is the place for us.”

Missouri and Alabama also offered scholarships to both players.

“We could still get away from home but still be really close to our family in Kansas City,” Kayla Cheadle told the Tribune. “We could still be independent away from home but still have each other there, too.”

Very exciting... and cool! We are so glad you'll be attending KU!

The Cheadle twins are, more accurately, seniors-to-be. I wonder if they're related to actor Don Cheadle who also is from KC.

Thanks ladies. You made a wise choice. I was blogging earlier this week with some moron from MU (I don't remember his handle) about the now (happily deceased) MU vs KU Border war. I advised him (her?) that KU has more than twice the total number all sport conference championships than MU and if it weren't for MU's recent years' victorys in football MU would not have have their slim one game (2?) advantage in football. That aside, KU is listed tied for 25th in Rhodes Scholarships awarded since inception. MU is not even listed in the top 50. Again made a good choice.
