Hattiesburg star guard Ulmer signs with Southwest

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Terralyn Ulmer has held down the point guard spot at Hattiesburg High for the last three years. She ended her career on top with a Class 5A state championship.

Now it's time for Ulmer to start all over at the college level. She made it official Tuesday, signing with Southwest Community College.

"I'm actually nervous," Ulmer said. "Well I was nervous. I still am nervous. It feels good to finally sign and to move onto the next level."

Ulmer said her decision was made easy by the comfort she felt at Southwest.

"It feels like home," she said. "That's it. It feels like home. I'm more comfortable there."

Lady Tigers head coach Caronica DeBose-Jackson said Ulmer's leadership will allow her to make the transition to the college game.

"I think she'll do well," DeBose-Jackson said. "She's a leader. She's been a leader for me for three years. On the collegiate level that's the main thing that they need. Especially at the point guard position. Someone who is going to lead vocally and someone who is going to lead with their actions. So I think she'll do a great job."
