[July 28, 2017]    MONMOUTH, – Hartsburg-Emden High School’s Alec Hayes has announced his plans to enroll at Monmouth College this fall and play basketball for the Fighting Scots.



Hayes, a 6-foot-6 forward who was a 1,000-point scorer for the Stags, will play for Todd Skrivseth at Monmouth. Skrivseth enters his seventh season guiding the Fighting Scot’s men’s basketball program.

“Alec is a versatile interior player who can stretch his scoring to the three-point line,” said Skrivseth. “We’re excited he is joining our program and will compete for an opportunity as a much needed interior player.”

The four-year letter winner also turned in an MVP year for the Stags and earned first team all-Tomahawk Conference honors. Academically, Hayes graduated as the class valedictorian.

“Alec defines the term ‘student-athlete,’ excelling on and off the court,” said his high school coach Jason Garber. “He has been an exceptional role model in all aspects. Athletically, he has the skill set to go inside or outside. Monmouth has found themselves one heck of a basketball player.”

In the last three years Monmouth has produced five all-conference selections and one all-region honoree. The Scots return two all-conference selections for the 2017-18 campaign.
