Former Lady Buccaneer basketball student-athlete Chasity Pope of Opelika, Alabama has signed a letter of intent to play for Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tennessee.
Hiwassee College is part of the National Christian College Athletics Association (NCCAA). Last season, the Lady Tigers concluded a winning season with a record of 20-10, winning the first round of the NCCAA National Tournament defeating #6 seed Southwest Christian College of Texas in overtime. #7 Hiwassee lost in their next round to #4 Grace College of Indiana.
Chasity was part of Dawson’s second winning season in a row in 2018 under 4th year head coach Romeo Lagmay, Jr, “Buc Nation is proud of Chasity. She still has skills to work on, but at least she has 3 seasons to do so. It was our goal for her to play one season in Glendive and move on to the 4-year level. All three of our sophomores have signed to the next level, and that is a major part of our mission at the two-year level.”
Chasity was technically considered a freshman as an athlete at Dawson, but was a sophomore academically due to being a transfer from a university in Alabama. As a Lady Buc, she averaged 4 ppg and 5 rpg. She signed letting it be known she isn’t a quitter, “I’ve never liked running, but I won’t let that stop me from chasing my dreams. I’m blessed for the opportunity to be a Tiger…same grind, different location.”
