Hirschi Pair Heading to College!

 Two Hirschi Lady Husky athletes will be heading off to the next level after signing Friday in the Hirschi cafeteria!

Asia Gates and Anastaeshia Lee both put pen to paper, as Gates will play basketball for South Plains College in Levelland, and Lee will run track for Langston University in Oklahoma.

Lee said she has even higher goals than just running in college.

"Track is my life, really," she said. "My dream is to run in the Olympics, and to go to that next level, and I'm getting to have that dream so I think it's pretty cool."

But she said she wasn't always sure she wanted to continue her career on the oval. "After State, I didn't want to run anymore," Lee admitted. "After that, I said I didn't want to run anymore. I had to watch a couple of my videos to get back in to it, and I really started to miss it."

Gates credited Hirschi basketball coach Leta Lofton for her success. "She prepared us greatly," she said of her coach. "She put us through a lot, to get to where we needed to be, and to where I am. I'm very grateful for her and every minute, even though I hated it sometimes, every second was worth it."

Gates also talked about the opportunity to sign next to her longtime friend Lee.

"Me and 'Staeshia have been playing with each other since third grade," she said. "So just to be able to do this with her was really great. We promised each other that we'd make it and we did it, so I'm very, very proud of us."
