High school is almost over which means school sports are coming to an end. The most stressful decision seniors are left to make their senior year is what their lives will look like after they receive their diplomas and walk across the stage. Most students’ goal after high school is to go to college and get a good, steady job, but somewhere on between some seniors hope to make their mark playing college sports. is year seven seniors have signed to continue playing sports in college. Eaton’s athletic director, Steve Longwell said, “I get super excited when an athlete signs to play for college. I enjoy the fact that the athlete gets to go on and further their career at the collegiate level.”

Chelsey Lockey signed to play volleyball at Flordia Gulf Coast. Lockey, who plans on majoring in elementary education, said, “When I was on my visit, I knew right away that Florida Gulf Coast was the school I wanted to go to because of the beautiful campus and warm weather. e coaching sta was also something that really sparked my interest as well.”

Darice Kaiser signed to play volleyball at Sheridan, Wyoming. Kaiser said, “The college in general was just such a great fit for me. It is so cute and has some really cool new facilities that would help me with my education. Volleyball was the leading factor just because of the coach. She told me where she sees me and how I would bene t the team, so it helped me a lot with the decision.” While Kaiser was on the fence of what college to at- tend, the Sheridan coach gave her a good point of how and why she would succeed more at Sheridan than any other college. Kaiser plans on going into teaching math to high school students, but it may change.

Celsi Jurgensmeier signed to keep playing softball at Northwest Kansas Technical. Jurgensmeier said, “When I went on my visit I enjoyed the campus and the people. I also liked how the area of this college felt exactly like home. e coach really struck my interest by her talk of making me a better softball player and getting me to the next level. It’s only four hours from home, so I am able to come home easily but not all the time.”

Whitley Ervin is still unsure of where she wants to go, but she is sure that she will be signing to keep playing basketball. Ervin said, “I am still trying to decide between Morningside and Marshalltown, which are both in Iowa, because both colleges have everything I am looking for and have offered me scholarships not only athletically, but academically as well.”

Alexis Lamoreaux signed to keep playing basketball at Laramie County Community College. Lamoreaux said, “LCCC is a smaller college, considering it’s only a junior college, but also I’m not far from home and I’m not for sure what I want to do after college so this gives me a chance to kind of experiment with what I want to do.”

Jace Roselle signed at Eastern Wyoming college for the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Roselle said, “The college was a great campus. I was recommend- ed to tour a lot of schools, but Eastern Wyoming really sparked my interest because they have the best coach, who went all in for me during my visit, and facility for my sport. And also they are really helping me out by providing me with a lost money.”

Zeke Hass signed to keep playing base- ball at North- eastern Junior College. Hass said, “It’s awesome to be playing at the next level because I get to play and be around people like me. It’ll be cool to have a place where I t in and I’ll be able to hit some tanks there too. I wanted to go to NJC because I can develop more and keep improv- ing to get to the next level, it’s also wood bat so that makes it nice!”
