Senior athletes have worked hard throughout their past four years of high school, working on their craft and bettering their skills to compete at a high level. On Friday, May 22nd, Athletic Director Melissa Schmidt held a virtual signing day to celebrate these hard working athletes for committing to play at the next level in college. Since these athletes did not get a chance to have a signing day at school due to the stay at home order, Schmidt wanted to make sure that their work and determination was honorably recognized before they graduate. It is important that we acknowledge these seniors for the hard work they put into their sport and congratulate them on becoming college athletes.
