ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Wednesday was a big one for Alaska's high schoolers as four athletes signed national letters of intent to play sports in college.
In hockey, Kaitlyn Harding of Anchorage committed to defending NCAA women's champion Wisconsin. Harding, who played one season of high school hockey in Anchorage, has spent the last few years playing in Canada. She will join Alaskans Alev and Derya Kelter (Chugiak H.S.) in the Badgers' women's program.
At Wasilla high School, two basketball players signed letters of intent. Connor Devine committed to Division I South Dakota State, while Alyssa Hutchins is staying home to play for UAA.
Houston's Savanna James made her college choice as well. James, a three-sport star, will attend Division II Black Hills State (SD) on a basketball scholarship.
Earlier this week, Kodiak's Connor Murphy signed his letter of intent to play football for Mayville State University, which is located in North Dakota.
