We are introducing a new feature on our website – a weekly update on how Blake Bengal alumni are faring in college athletics. Below is a recap of how some of our Bengals did this past week in college sports. It was a relatively light week, as colleges are still transitioning from Fall to Winter sports and some took a break from competition for Thanksgiving.
Alyshia Adams (Blake ’15) is a senior on the Campbell University basketball team. Campbell has won four consecutive games to improve to 4-1. Alyshia saw action in both games this week, a 57-49 win over Norfolk State and a 65-52 win over Omaha.
