Signing on to College: Spring Signing Day 2018

The last step before officially going on to play college sports has come for these nine athletes.

The goal of many high school athletes who play competitively is to be scouted by a college and asked to play for them. Today, eight of these competitive Antioch student athletes signed and officially committed to the schools that had scouted them. Friends, families and coaches of these athletes were all elated and expressed how proud they were of all eight athletes.

The eight athletes consisted of three girl’s soccer players, four baseball players and one bowler. Bowler Sam Knab signed with Division I school UW-Whitewater. The three girls who are going to play soccer in college consist of Karly Monaco, who signed with Division III school UW-Oshkosh; Ella Roberts, who signed with Division II school Winona State; and Monica Wilhelm, who signed with Division I school University of Iowa.

“I’m very excited to meet new people, have a higher level of competition and have more opportunities for my future,” Monaco said.

The four baseball players consisted of Patrick Day, who signed with Division III school Illinois Tech; Colin Wieska, who signed with Division III school St. Lawrence University; JR Johnson, who signed with Division III school UW-Oshkosh; and Nick Sheren, who signed to play Division III at Augustana.

“I’m really excited and can’t wait,” Day said. “I expect it to be really fun.”

In addition to the girls soccer and boys baseball programs, Patrick Coleman officially signed to play soccer with Norte Dame and Hunter Price signed to play football at William Penn College.

Wish all nine of these athletes good luck as they continue with the rest of their time in high school and make their way to be part of the college sports community.
