Hershey, NE – Ashley Hassett wanted to keep playing basketball after high school and she will while staying close to home, which for her is already two notches in the win column.
On March 5th, Hassett signed her letter of intent to play basketball with the North Platte Community College Knights. The team is fresh off a Region IX championship and still fighting for a place at the table in the national tournament. It’s a culture and environment that Hassett felt best fit her talents.
“I’ve gone and hung out with the girls alot, in open gyms and at games. I feel I fit in very well” said Hassett at her signing ceremony.
Coach Thurman was excited to have her on the team saying “Ashley gives us size which we are always looking for, and a scorers mentality. She will fit in well with the culture that we are building for the Knights.”
Hassett was impressive in her years at Hershey with career averages of 11.4 points per game, 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting 30% from 3pt range.
Hassett is the 2nd recruit for the 2019-20 season, joining Isa Valenzuela from Legacy high school in Broomfield, CO.
