Silverdale Baptist's Kaili Phillips has signed to play softball for the University of Tennessee Lady Vols.
Phillips, a home run-swatting catcher, has been committed to the UT program since January of her freshman year when she was with Central.
She led the city last year, her junior year, in batting average, home runs and RBIs.
Phillips, who is a 4.0 student, plays travel ball with Fury Premier based out of Chattanooga.
UT Coach Ralph Weekley said, "Kaili Phillips is a tremendous student-athlete in every aspect. She is fast, has a strong accurate arm, hits for average and power and is a very smart player. Her work ethic is amazing. She has the potential to be a very good player in the SEC."
Coach Weekley added, "She is really good. I watched her hit four home runs the past two weekends."
