Tuesday represented another day to look ahead for many high school seniors. At Service, Grace Christian and South High Schools seniors made their commitments by signing national letters of intent.
Service saw 12 make plans.
Cyaron Williams will play football at the University of Minnesota-Morris.
“It’s been a long process,” he said. “Checking emails and talking to coaches. It’s been a long stressful process, but it’s nice to get it over today and sign.”
At Grace Christian, senior Grace Gannon decided one of the nation’s premiere track and field programs is for her. She’ll stay home and attend the University of Alaska Anchorage. Even though she’s spent 13 years in Alaska, she expects some change– as is usually the case when attending college.
“The idea of transitioning into a new setting is going to be different, but I’m looking forward to it.”
Over at South, it’s about volleyball for Savanna Davis. The Wolverines’ middle hitter will take the junior college route trekking to Grays Harbor Community College in Aberdeen, Washington. It was getting late in the game and she didn’t have a school yet. She does now.
“I just kept going to the gym and hoping to find a college I could play for and I did,” she said.
Three different paths were traveled, but the end result was the same: all three will lead to the next level next year.
