EHS hosts second signing session

Student-athletes carry on with their athletic career


Eaton High School hosted their second signing night on Wednesday, Feb. 1. Many students are committed to college and ready to carry on with their future once they graduate. EHS recognized seniors Emily Maske, who committed to Northeastern Junior College (NJC ) for volleyball, Zac Grable, who committed to Western State for football and track, Jocelyn Contreras, who committed to Point Loma Nazarene University for track, and Ethyn Preston and Amanda Davis, who enlisted into the military. 

The purpose of a signing day is to show that the student-athlete agrees to attend the college for one academic year. The support that is shown by the people who have helped them reach their goal is helpful to the athlete as well. This shows the athlete that they are proud of themselves for being able to make it happen. Maske said, “I was truly blessed with the best coaching staff at EHS. Not only did they teach me so much about volleyball, but the leadership and character as well. The skills they taught me will most definitely be carried on at NJC.” The coaches at Eaton have helped many athletes be successful in their long term careers. 

Hosting a signing day is important to the athletes who have committed to a college to continue their athletic career. It shows the athletes that they will continue to have support throughout their future in college academically and athletics. Contreras said, “It was amazing to have my friends, coaches, and parents surrounding me on my signing day because each of them have inspired and shaped me in different ways. Being able to have them in the same room to support me through everything just goes to show how blessed I am to the support system.” The signing event was a success for the coaches and students who committed.
