Hally "Bug" Nicole Yust, 9, of Spring Hill had a passion for basketball, and her biggest goal was to be a college basketball player. She won’t get that opportunity, though. Yust died July 9. Several news outlets reported July 11 that the cause of death was a case of primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, caused a freshwater amoeba, Naegleria fowleri, just the second ever known case of the "brain-eating amoeba" in Kansas. Yust likely was exposed to N. fowleri while waterskiing, as she had been waterskiing at several lakes in the week or two before her death.

Hally's family has established the Hally "Bug" Yust K-State Women’s Basketball Scholarship with the Ahearn Fund in her memory.
