Heather Hayes, a 5-foot-8 guard from Derby, has been added to the Kansas University women's basketball roster.
Hayes, a transfer from Seward County CC, enrolled at KU in the summer of 2003 and spent the 2003-04 season as a red-shirt walk-on.
Hayes left the team following that season, but decided to return after she was offered a scholarship by coach Bonnie Henrickson.
"Heather has a great work ethic and will add needed depth to our team," Henrickson said.
Hayes graduated from Derby High in 2001 where she averaged 15 points and five assists and was named honorable mention all-state as a senior.
The addition of Hayes gives Henrickson 10 players on scholarship.
