Sophomore Alexis Singleton has signed her letter of intent to compete for the Mustangs of Western New Mexico University next season. The Mustangs compete in the Lone Star Conference, one of the top Division II conferences in the country. Singleton started 19 of 30 games at the point guard position during the 2018-2019 season for the Lady Greyhounds, leading the team in assists. She was awarded the Lady Greyhound award at the Greyhound banquet which was presented to a player who demonstrated high character, great sportsmanship, exemplifying the term “student athlete” and being an overall excellent representative of MACC and the Moberly community.
Western New Mexico University is located in Silver City, New Mexico which is about three hours from Singleton’s hometown of El Paso, TX.
Lady Greyhounds’ coach Hana Haden is happy that Singleton chose a school that was a great fit for her. “Alexis is the type of person anyone would want in their program. She is a joy to coach and be around and a phenomenal teammate. She grew a lot as a player this season and was playing her best basketball toward the end of the year. She was instrumental in our run in the Region Tournament. I’m excited to follow the rest of her career and see what she accomplishes at Western Mexico.”
Singleton enjoyed her time at MACC and feels that it has prepared her going forward, “Being a Lady Greyhound was a great opportunity and experience. I had never had the responsibility of running a team before, but with the help of my coaches I feel that I was able to transform into a true point guard.”
Singleton cited several reasons for choosing Western New Mexico including her relationship with the coaching staff, the opportunity to compete against great competition, and the opportunity to be a key player and contributor within their system and program.
