TOPEKA (KSNT) – Rossville senior Thatcher Horak and Shawnee Heights senior Hanna McGowan both committed to play at the collegiate level. Thatcher, a three-sport standout for the Bulldawgs, signed to play baseball at Washburn University. He will represent Rossville at the Kansas Shrine Bowl this summer and helped the Bulldawgs capture the 2014 Class 3A state football championship.
Hanna signed with New Mexico State for swimming. She won last year’s Class 5-1A 100 yard breaststroke for the Lady T-Birds and also finished third in the 200 yard individual medley. Hanna was unable to compete this year due to a season-ending injury.
