Northwestern State University is becoming the place to go for Abbeville High School athletes.
Former AHS athletes who signed athletic scholarships to Northwestern are Janae Allen and Rechelle Bessard, both in track and Jason O’Brien signed for football.
The newest NSU from Abbeville High is Annmarie Broussard.
On Friday, Broussard signed a track scholarship to attend Northwestern State University in Natchitoches. When she graduates Abbeville this year, she will leave as the best female pole vaulter from the school. Her personal best vault is 12 feet high.
