Four War Eagles sign athletic scholarships

WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) - A number of Wayne County War Eagles signed athletic scholarships on Wednesday afternoon.

Tanner Wells heads to Summit to join Southwest Mississippi baseball. Lasharia Everett and Bayleigh Busby both signed women’s basketball scholarships with Coastal Alabama Community College.

Aaliyah Hill inked with Hinds Community College.

"My ultimate goal is going to be winning and I hope to contribute as much as I can for the team and lead them as far as we can go,” Hill said.

"Something I dreamed of as a kid and to make it come true, it's awesome,” Wells said.

“It actually feels good because at first I was going to give up and I wasn’t going to go play,” Everett said. “Now that all my family and friends pushed me, I’m glad I did it.

“It’s very exciting,” Busby said. “I lost one of my teammates about two years ago and I’m doing it all for her."
