LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

Three members of the South Plains College track and field teams inked their National Letter of Intent on Wednesday afternoon in the Texan Club on the campus of South Plains College in Levelland.

Hassan Abdi, an Amarillo native and the 2015 Half-Marathon national champion, signed with Oklahoma State University after proving to be one of the top distance runners in the country during his two seasons wearing the orange and blue. Abdi is an elite athlete and standout in the 3K and 5K for the Texans.

Joining Abdi in the Sooner State is Medinah Spencer, a Baltimore, Maryland native, who will take her talents just down the road to Norman, where she will compete for the University of Oklahoma. Spencer has been an asset for the Lady Texans this season.

The second Lady Texan to sign on Wednesday afternoon was Alexis Hyshaw, a Naperville, Illinois native who will head to Conference USA and compete for Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, Louisiana. Hyshaw is a sprinter who earned multiple top-10 finishes in the 60 meters this season.

South Plains will be competing for the 2016 NJCAA Outdoor national championship on May 17-May 19 in Levelland. The Texans will be looking to make collegiate history as they battle to capture their 10th consecutive national title. The Lady Texans have also won back-to-back national Outdoor championships during the past two seasons, and will be looking to extend that steak when they take to the track next Tuesday.
