The 5-foot-9 Wichita, Kansas, native has averaged nearly 14 points through the first nine games this season and should continue to be a key part of coach Jason Durst’s team this year.


Samantha Zielinski • Senior • Hannibal softball and swimming


Hannibal senior Samantha Zielinski, captain of the swim team, led her squad to a home win over Louisiana, taking first place in both the 50 and 100 free. That’s not all, though, as the biggest news revolves around softball. Zielinski, an infielder, recently signed to play with the HLGU Lady Trojans program.
