Continuing the pattern of successful student athletes, 32 seniors made their way to the main theater to sign their respective national letters of intent for this year’s national signing day. The morning of Feb. 5, these seniors took their passion for athletics to the next level. 

“I’m super excited to attend [University of Michigan]. I feel like it’s the best place for me to attend both academically and athletically,” said senior Jude Kim, who committed to University of Michigan Ann-Arbor for golf. “Go Blue!”

Senior Kolbe Aven has played baseball his entire life, and now he officially signed with Furman University for the sport. “It feels good [to be committed]. I’m relieved and blessed to be where I am today,” Aven said. “The academics are great, they had the majors I was looking for, and they’re really competitive in baseball.”
