WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Four Texoma high school basketball standouts signed college letters on Wednesday, although only three will be playing hoops in college.

Windthorst's Sydni Clifton, Nocona's Kameron Hill and Rider's Mercedes Leija will all be playing basketball at the next level, while former Lady Raider star Corbri Wingfield will run track.

Clifton, who made first-team all-District 9-2A and TABC all-Region II-2A, signed with Arlington Baptist College, the two-time defending NCCAA Div. II National Champions.

Hill, the 2015 District 9-3A MVP who also was named all-Region II-3A, will play for NCAA Division III Austin College in Sherman.

Leija signed with Ecclesia college in Springdale, Arkansas, which also competes in the NCCAA, but in Division I.

Wingfield said she had several offers to play basketball, but that Wayland Baptist track gave her the best scholarship offer. She will run the 300-meter hurdles, which she just started running this season.

    Calling Davis’ retirement unusual may be an understatement, but it’s a much kinder term than his teammate Lorenzo Alexander used.
