Astoria senior Ian Hunt recently signed a letter-of-intent to play basketball at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington — one of two local athletes to sign letters in order to continue their athletic careers in college.
Hunt, a first team all-Cowapa League player last season, will join his sister Chloee, who plays volleyball and basketball for the Geoducks of Evergreen State.
Their mother, Angee (Henderson) Hunt, played volleyball at the University of Oregon from 1991-94.
Seaside senior Gretchen Hoekstre signed a letter-of-intent Monday to compete in track and field at Brigham Young University.
As a junior in 2017-18, Hoekstre won the 4A state title in the shot put and took second in the discus.
