ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— High school athletes in New Mexico signed letters of intent to play at schools all over the country.


Sandia High School is sending five student-athletes to the next level. Among them are Hannah Gallegos, who will play soccer at Denver University.

Max Hawton signed with Kentucky Wednesday.

“It's awesome, you know. All this hard work has paid off,” Hawton said. “It's great going to an SEC school.”

Albuquerque High also had five students sign with colleges or universities.

Alisa Meraz-Fishbein will run track and cross country at the University of Colorado.

“I really liked its location. It’s close enough to New Mexico, where I can visit my family and stuff, but far enough where I can have my own experience,” she said.

Rio Rancho High School had three student-athletes sign letters of intent. Cibola had two players sign with universities and La Cueva's Briana Mortenson signed with New Mexico State University.
