Alyssa Leister will retire her maroon and gold for blue and gold after signing a letter of intent with Texas A&M University-Kingsville for a track scholarship.
Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “I am happy for her and she is close enough for me to go watch her run.”
Kingsville recently won their first Lone Star Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championship since 1970. The Javelinas are ranked fourth in the national team rankings so recruiting Leister will add to their speed and distance in the long jump.
Leister will pursue a degree in kinesiology in hopes to return to Nordheim to coach.
