HANSEN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Several Hansen Huskies signed letters of intent with collegiate programs on Saturday in front of the high school.

Ramon Huerta-Sanchez will take his talents to Treasure Valley Community College for soccer.

And finally, there's Rakel Williams who's going to Southwest Oregon Community College for women's basketball.

Gibson said, "I felt that the coaches were very receptive to my questions and I liked how I fit into the program." "One of the assistant coaches played for Kansas State and the WNBA, so I felt that she can help me advance my game further. I want to grow as a basketball player and I felt that Bethel has the answer."

Williams added, "and what I like about the athletic program is promising to me as a future athlete. I have worked my whole life to complete this goal and I will continue accomplishing goals playing college basketball."

Athletic director Jim Lasso has been involved in Husky athletics for 20 years and has never seen this many athletes sign at one time.
