Newcastle's Sara Hamilton signs with Seminole State

by Jacob Unruh Published: April 25, 2014

Newcastle senior guard Sara Hamilton signed with Seminole State recently, making good on words from her late brother.

Hamilton played one day following the death of her brother Matthew early last season and made a 3-pointer in his honor as time expired. You can read that story here. She said then he encouraged her to work hard to play college basketball in their final communication before his death in an auto accident.

Hamilton averaged 12.1 points per game for the Racers, shooting 45 percent overall and 34 percent from 3-point range.
