West Charlotte sprinter signs with LSU

West Charlotte High sprinter Nyosha Bryant, the reigning N.C. 4A champion in the 400-meter sprint, signed with Louisiana State.

Bryant, a senior, was named most valuable athlete at the N.C. 4A Indoor championships last month, when she won the long jump (19 feet) and second in the 55-meter dash (7.11) seconds.

She also won indoor state titles in the 55 and 300 as a junior in 2008.
