National Intent 2-6-2014The school year is now half over, which is the time for seniors in the Class of 2014 to make their final decisions about life after high school, especially future college athletes.

On Thursday, Kings Local School District recognized those seniors who have signed on as college athletes in the Bradford Media Center. Family, friends, coaches and administrators were present as the students committed to the next four years.

During each school year there are three signing days at Kings, for each season that the students have made their final decisions about the college they will attend in the fall.

Phil Poggi, athletic director at Kings, said, “This is a way for Kings to recognize senior athletes who have signed on with college athletics.”

In November, four athletes signed on (see photo above). Matt Fowlersigning2 signed to The University of Cincinnati for baseball; Amina Ismail signed on to Xavier University for tennis; Kate Etter signed on to Marshall University for swimming; and Luke Glischinski signed on to Ohio Northern University for baseball.

“Usually,” Poggi says, “there are about 15-17 student athletes who sign on all together throughout the year.”

In this second ceremony, eight seniors signed.

Robbie Frye – Wittenberg University – Soccer

Kristen Sevier – Wright State University – Cross Country

Maddie Kuhn-Heidelberg University – Soccer

Courtney Kelleher- Duquesne University – Soccer

Sydney Zinser- Belmont University – Soccer

Alex Ward- Tiffin University – Football

Sevier said it’s been a long road.

“All my hard work is finally paying off, especially the hard work I’ve put in with my coaches Jim and Lynn Brant for the past 6 years.”
