Hames signs with NIACC

Alyssa Hames (front left) is shown with mother Tracy to her left. Behind her, left to right, are NIACC head coach Brad Vaught, AGWSR head coach Laurie Gann, and AGWSR assistant coach Mike Finger as she signs a letter of intent to play basketball at NIACC.

Alyssa Hames, like other student-athletes, has had an odd year. Hers took a turn, though, but now she is coming out of it.

Starting in March, the AGWSR Cougar senior watched her junior track and field season canceled. She waited with everybody to see a late start to the softball season. Then, just before her senior year started, a heart attack claimed the life of her father, Brad.
