Senior Bekah Sandstrom to play basketball for Regis University

On Friday afternoon, senior Bekah Sandstrom signed to play basketball at Regis University. Family, friends, coaches and teammates all gathered to support her.

Bekah received a scholarship to Regis for both academics and basketball.

“Out of all the options that I had to go play basketball in college, Regis was my first choice just because it’s a good school and it’s in Denver, so it’s close to my family. I’m excited, I’m a little nervous too, but mostly just excited that it’s over and that it happened, that all my hard work has paid off,” said Sandstrom. 

Sandstrom has played basketball at LHS all four years, and started on varsity as a sophomore. She is the first person to sign for girls basketball in almost four years.

“She came to tryouts, and I remember her being 6 foot tall as a freshman and chasing down a guard full court, running behind and jumping up and blocking her shot into the back wall, and we were like, “Why has this kid not been playing before now?”, recalls head coach Adam Williams. 

This winter will be Sandstrom’s final season at Littleton before heading over to Regis.
