Playing college sports is a dream for many athletes. Six seniors signed their National Letters of Intent (NLI) to continue their sports in college April 11.
The NLI is a binding document used to indicate a student athlete’s commitment to participating National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) colleges and universities in the United States. It requires one full academic year, three quarters or two semesters, and it provides some amount of athletic scholarship for at least one academic year.
Athletes may not sign the NLI until their senior year of high school. However, they can verbally commit at anytime during their academic career.
Here are the senior athletes that signed:
Abby Fillion: University of Rhode Island- Volleyball
Chris Commings: Northern Arizona University- Football
Tyler Good: Linfield College- Football
Raina Hines: Loyola Marymount University- Cross Country
Brooke McKelvey: Carleton College- Softball
Drew Vannaman: Whitman College- Baseball
