Edmond Santa Fe senior girls basketball player Kelsey Johnson will get her shot at college basketball.

Johnson, who is nearly deaf in one ear and has only partial hearing in the other, signed with Murray State on Wednesday.

A forward who started at times for the Wolves this season, Johnson primarily came off the bench during the run to the Class 6A state semifinals. She was aided by a school-provided interpreter at each game and practice.
