On National Signing Day, nine student athletes signed their official letters of intent to play collegiate sports.

“I love the sport that I play, so it feels great to be able to play for four more years,” senior volleyball player Riley Wertzberger said.

The students earned roughly $822,000 combined in scholarships to their future colleges, with a few even receiving a full athletic scholarship to their school.

“The first thing any college coach asks for is the students’ transcripts,” Athletic Director Greg Pels said. “Academics is what sets these students apart from the rest.”

The athletes who signed were –

Riley Wertzberger (Volleyball) – Georgetown University

Raven Presley (Volleyball) – Midwestern State University

Andrew Plese (Swimming) – University of Maine

Maddie Williams (Girls Soccer) – Midwestern State University

Diana Sifuentes (Girls Soccer) – Lubbock Christian University

Esteban Cardoza (Baseball) – Texas Christian University

Deon Gallington(Football) – Bacone College

Dyland Jackson (Football) – Bacone College

Jvon McGee (Football) – Wayland Baptist University
