A total of 12 members of the Class of 2014 have signed to continue their athletic pursuits at colleges and universities across the nation.
Soccer players Abby Stayer, Emily Stayer and Emma Hawthorn (pictured above) were the latest to ink agreements. On April 23, the Stayer sisters signed with Division III Franklin College in Indiana where Emily will study social work while Abby remains undecided. Hawthorn, a First Team all league honoree, signed with Division III Wittenberg University and will study Spanish language education.
"The question wasn't if these girls were going to sign, it was where," said head varsity coach Roy Craig.
The same could be said for fellow teammate Rachel Strahorn. Strahorn signed with NCAA Division II Ursuline College, located outside Cleveland. There, she will receive academic scholarships and athletic grants to study nursing and play soccer for the Arrows. Strahorn is a three year varsity letterwinner and has been named to the First Team all league and First Team all area for two consecutive years.
Also signing this spring were fellow seniors Elijah Kinney, lineman, and Alex Livingston, receiver. The pair agreed to continue their football careers as teammates for the Cardinals of Otterbein University, an NCAA Division III school located north of Columbus. Livingston intends to study criminal justice and Kinney intends to study political science.
Livingston, a CJ baseball three year varsity letterwinner, also plans to pitch and play outfield for the Cardinals' baseball program.
