Hancock plans to focus her studies in health sciences.
Next up at the signing table at Scottsbluff High School on Wednesday was Scottsbluff/Gering Seacat swimmer Ian Galindo.
Galindo is hoping to continue with the 200 IM at the college level.
As for his time as a high school swimmer, he says there were many fond memories.
This will be the first year of swimming competition for the NCAA division two school and Galindo’s exctied to be a part of the program and he’ll have a big name in the sport leading the way.
As of right now Galindo says he’s leaning towards sports management/sports business as the area he’ll concentrate his studies on.
Plenty of family, friends, teammates, and classmates were on hand yesterday at the high school as Hancock and Galindo celebrated their big day.
