HAMBLETON — Tucker County High School senior student athlete Cameron Wamsley made it official that he will attend Alderson Broaddus University for his next level of education during a recent signing ceremony.

Wamsley has amassed a total of nine varsity letters while participating in four different sports for the Mountain Lions, and is planning to run cross country and track for the Battlers.

“I think Alderson Broaddus is a good fit for me for a few different reasons,” Wamsley said. “It is close to home, and has a nice small town feel about it. The classroom sizes are nice, and the coaches and faculty made me feel very welcome when I visited the campus.”

Wamsley plans to major in computer science on Battle Hill in Philippi.

Varsity stripes for Wamsley at Tucker County included three each in baseball and cross country, two on the hardwood and one in track as a newcomer in 2019.

“I have always felt drawn to running sports for some reason,” said Wamsley. “I think a lot of it is the feeling of satisfaction you get when you complete a race or a long course after giving it your best effort.

“I’m proud to have been able to represent the Mountain Lions these past four years, especially in some of the things we have accomplished in cross country and track,” he said.

Wamsley is the son of Scott and Jessica Wamsley.
