Cougars’ Co-Coaches Gerry Rocan and Kate Broadhead says that Burghart’s excellent speed and strength will be an asset to the team.

“Hailey will be a versatile player for our team, she will lead by example on what it means to be a great teammate.”

Burghart has spent time volunteering at her local animal shelter and is also a member of the local 4-H Club. She will be taking the college’s Construction Electrician program this upcoming fall.
