Nichols was part of a senior class that led the Bulldogs to within one game of a Federal League title last fall, losing in league play only to league champion Jackson. Nichols had her immediate family, friends and school staff on hand for her signing as one of five Green senior athletes to make their college choices official on national signing day.
