CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Two more star East athletes made their college decisions official on Wednesday. Zoey Brown is set to play hockey next year at the University of Wyoming, while Jude Guevara is joining the track and field team at Black Hills State.

Guevara said that his trip to Spearfish was an easy selling point.

”When I went to visit, the head coach gave me a tour of everything. I met three of the athletes-- three of the sprinting athletes-- so then they were like ‘yeah, this place is great, the coaches are great’. So they just convinced me really,” Guevara said.

The Yellow Jackets are getting a really versatile athlete in Guevara; he participated and received multiple letters in three sports during his time at East. Guevara earned his first All-State selection for indoor track this past season, and performed at states. He posted three top five finishes-- fifth in the 55 meter dash, second in the 200 meter dash, and a state title in the 4x200 meter relay. He’s nearing the end of outdoor track season with states just a few weeks away, and has a chance to put a stamp on an already impressive year.

Brown won’t be going too far, and the Cowgirls were able to keep one of the best players in the state at home. She was the defensive player of the year in Wyoming last season, and was the leading point scorer for the Cheyenne Capitals with 21. Brown also played a big role for Team Wyoming, putting up 14 points.

She’s already built up a strong relationship with the coaching staff and players in Laramie-- having practiced with them on multiple occasions-- and she’s looking forward to doing what she does best next year.

”Definitely some goals. I think I’m coming for some goals and assists. I think I’m a very hard worker in the corners, I put all my work through the corners and try to bring that home to the net. So I hope to be a goal scorer because that’s all you can hope for when you’re a hockey player,” Brown said.

Congratulations to both athletes on their signings.
