Saint Francis Commit Dies in ATV Accident

A high school senior committed to play at Saint Francis died in an ATV accident on April 14th.

Mikayla Focht, who was set to play for the Red Flash next season, was a passenger on the ATV (all-terrain vehicle) when it hit deer that were on the roadway, leading the vehicle to overturn and throw both Focht and the driver.

Neither the driver, a twenty-three-year-old man, nor Focht were wearing helmets, according to reports. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident that happened around 4:00 in the morning.

Focht was scheduled to graduate from Hollidaysburg Area High School later this spring. She was just 18.

The Red Flash noted Focht's death in a tribute from the team's Twitter account:
