It didn’t take Victorianna Nelson long to prove herself as a force at the prep level. In her freshman season at South Lafourche High School, Nelson was a standout performer for the Lady Tarpons – one of the top post players in Class 5A. That success earned Nelson recognition in the form of a scholarship offer from McNeese State University, which will likely be the first of many for the young prospect.
