Samantha Aeschliman, a senior at Smoky Valley High School, Lindsborg, Kan., signed a letter of intent to continue her tennis and academic careers at Hesston College.
A four-year varsity points leader at Smoky Valley, Aeschliman was a key member of the 2010 team that finished fifth at the state tournament.
An honor roll student and National Honor Society member, Aeschliman plans to study math education at Hesston.
“Sam comes from a great tennis program at Smoky Valley,” said Hesston coach Jeron Baker. “She has been their points winner all four years. Her talent and skill are dwarfed only by her personality and excitement for life. She will be a perfect fit on campus. I couldn’t be happier about her joining our incredible program.”
Aeschliman is the daughter of Julie Aeschliman, Lindsborg.
