Southeast Whitfield volleyball star Wendy Perez inked a letter of intent with Dalton State Tuesday afternoon in the Southeast cafeteria.

Perez was a three year starter for the Raiders. “She became a dominant threat on the front row in an extremely short amount of time,” Southeast coach Bethany Kenemer said.

The graduating senior finished her high school career with 799 kills (third all time for the Raiders), 132 career block shots, 95 career aces, and 377 digs.

Perez was a member of Southeast’s 2011 and 2012 region championship teams. Her 2011 and 2013 teams went to Georgia’s “Sweet 16” and the 2012 Raiders were in the final four.

She was a member of the 2012 and 2013 All Area volleyball teams and on the Dalton Daily Citizen All Area Team.

Wendy is the daughter of Maria and Mario Perez.

Dalton State athletic teams are closing out their first year of competition. They are a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and will join the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) this fall.
