ALAMOSA – Sanford High School senior Asia Caldon has decided where she will continue her academic and athletic careers as she has signed a national letter of intent to play women’s basketball for Adams State University.

“I really liked that it was close to home and when I met with the coach he seemed like a real cool guy,” Caldon said. “The atmosphere there is really cool.”

Caldon plans to study elementary education at Adams State with the goal to become a teacher.

This past season, Caldon averaged 13.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.1 steals per game. She led the Lady Indians in all four statistical categories.
