Newton the latest to commit to Hardin-Simmons University
HAWLEY, Texas —
As we near the back portion of the school year, another Big Country stand-out is making the commitment to Hardin-Simmons University to continue both academics and athletics.
Hawley senior Samantha Newton will join Cowgirl basketball as a freshman this fall, after holding a signing ceremony on Monday morning in the school's library.
Newton has been a key cog in the Lady Bearcat offense and defense these past four years, especially in the team's run to its first playoff berth in 15 years during the 2015-2016 season. She joins football members Quay Stokes (HSU) and Kole Smith (McMurry) as other Hawley High School student-athletes to commit so far in 2018.
