Hillsboro High School senior Sammy Koons signed a letter of intent last week Thursday to play softball at Bethany College next year. Koons batted .455 with 25 runs batted in last spring for an 18-5 team that made it to state for the third consecutive season. Koons was a first-team all-league pick for the Central Kansas League in 2011 and was a second team all-league selection her first two seasons. Seated with Koons are her parents, Carrie and Rod Koons.
