Springstead senior volleyball player Megan Morrison isn't a fan of the Florida weather.

"I hate the heat," Morrison said.

So when she made her college commitment, she steered clear of scorching summers and humidity. The middle hitter has verbally committed to play volleyball at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks.

Morrison was a second-team all-North Suncoast player last fall and led the Eagles in kills and aces, even though she missed three weeks with an ankle injury. She had 12 kills in a regional loss to Riverview during Springstead's first ever state postseason appearance.

Morrison said she hopes to lead Springstead on an even deeper playoff run this year before joining the NCAA Division II program.

"I went up there and visited," Morrison said. "It's beautiful."

And cold.

The current high in Spring Hill (according to Weather.com): 92, feels like 99.

In Fairbanks: 57, feels like 57. That, by the way, is 52 degrees warmer than the average January high of 2 degrees.

There's a reason the school's website brands itself as "America's Arctic University."
