It was a big day for a St. Mary’s Tiger track & field standout Katie Aldredge who signed her national letter of intent to Texas A&M in front of family, friends and fellow students.

With this signing, she adds her name to the Aldredge family tradition of continuing education while excelling in sports on the collegiate level.

“Texas A&M showed great interest in me from the very start when the coaches visited here to Natchitoches or my family and I made trips to College Station they would make such a personable impression on me I felt right at home there, plus competing in the SEC against the top athletes in the nation does not hurt either,” Aldredge said.
