(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) In the last four seasons, Lafayette's more than doubled its win total from eight in 2011 to 17 in 2014.

Point guard Ashley Hinkle has been with the Irish throughout the rebuilding process. Now she's hoping to make an impact at the next level as she continues her career in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Hinkle signed a letter of intent Friday morning to solidify her place on the 2014-2015 Saint Mary Spires roster.

She stayed balanced as a senior at Lafayette averaging six points, five assists and three rebounds in 26 games.

The 5-foot-6 point guard joins a Spires team that went 4-23 last season. Head coach Bruce Erickson's entering his second year as head coach at the University of Saint Mary.
