The Instagram post Seimone Augustus made last month from Minnesota has made the rounds. Instead of wearing practice gear or something in a Minnesota Lynx blue, Augustus wore her gold Capitol jersey.
"My wife called because she was so excited to see Seimone in that Capitol High jersey," former Capitol coach Alvin Stewart said. "Seimone never forgets where she came from. She's proud to be from Baton Rouge, Capitol and LSU and she shows it. And we're proud of her. Those are her true colors, too."
Augustus, who starred for Stewart at Capitol from 1998-2002, is part of a star-studded class being inducted into the National High School Sports Hall of Fame at 5 p.m. Sunday in Indianapolis.
