In Memory of AJ


Friends and teammates of 18-year-old Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell—many of them dressed in bright colors to reflect Hadsell’s bright personality—gathered on campus April 20 for a candlelight vigil in memory of the Longwood freshman. Although Hadsell was not a varsity athlete, friends said sports were one of her passions, and her No. 6 club softball jersey hung in front of the crowd at the service. She also swam and played field hockey and soccer, they said. Hadsell had been missing from her home in Norfolk since spring break when her remains were found in Southampton County and then identified April 10.
