Ten SM East athletes celebrated college signing day and will head off to play their sport at the next level after graduation.
Last week’s snow storm pushed the celebration back by a week, but didn’t chill the enthusiasm of the athletes, parents and fellow students as they announced their college choices. The group of athletes compiled a long list of accomplishments, including all-state honors, all-league honors and school records.
Each student was introduced to the crowd in the SM East gym Wednesday with their list of awards and letters and favorite memory of their high school career. The group included:
Dominique Atkinson Butler Community College Football
Trey Austin Iowa Western University Baseball
Savannah Bellem Baker University Softball
Ryan Carter Pittsburg State University Football
Madison Gray McPherson College Softball
Zachary Holbrook Iona College Swimming
Erin McGinley Kansas University Softball
Luke Taylor Baker University Football
Gunnar Troutwine Wichita State University Baseball
Jessica Young Middlebury University Ice Hockey
