The eight seniors sign together for their intent to play at a collegiate level. Along with the six volleyball players, there was a golf and lacrosse player to sign.

On Nov. 11, senior volleyball, golf and lacrosse athletes signed to the schools they will be attending next year. To follow COVID-19 social distancing regulations, tables for each athlete were separated.

Students signed to schools including Southern Arkansas University, Texas Chrisitian University, University of Central Oklahoma and Rockhurst University. 

“I’ve been waiting so long for this day,” senior varsity volleyball player signed to TCU Cecily Bramschreiber said. “Signing day was a little different this year, but I actually really enjoyed it. Each signee got to make their own table according to their college which was really cool.” 

At the event, a video which highlighted some of the athletes’ time playing their sport was played. 

I just hope they remember where they came from and remember all of these special people that have worked so hard to get them to this place,” head volleyball coach Ryan Mitchell said.

Senior varsity volleyball middle Lexie Collins signed to Wyoming University next year. 

“It was kind of surreal, but really exciting overall,” Collins said. “The day went as expected but the video they played for all the commits at the end was really nice. I am so excited.”
