National Letter of Intent Signing
By Katie Lehan
On Thursday, April 24 at 2:00 pm in Seton’s Commons, seniors Lindsey Niehaus, Kelley Kraemer, Chelsea Zang and Maggie Browne signed their National Letter of Intent also called a commitment letter. The letters are a contract saying that the athlete is committing to go to a specific school and participate in a specific sport for four years while in college. Niehaus signed with the University of Cincinnati for swimming. She commented on her signing experience and said, “I still find it surreal that I’m even going off to college next year. It’s a great feeling knowing that all of the hard work I have put into swimming since I was six has paid off and that UC has given me the chance to swim at a Division 1 level all four years.”
Kraemer signed with the College of the Holy Cross also for swimming. She said, “I’m really excited to swim for Holy Cross for the next four years and I know that Seton has prepared me well for the next chapter in my life.”
Zang signed with Wittenberg University for softball. She said, “I am super excited to play softball at Wittenberg University. I love the school, the coaches, and mostly the players! They are a great group and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store!”
Maggie Browne signed with Thomas More College for volleyball. She said, “Signing at Seton in front of all those people was surreal. I was really nervous before doing it, but all of the support I received made it a very memorable experience. I’m so excited to play at Thomas More next year!”
The Commons was packed with the smiling faces of families, coaches, teammates, and friends all there to support their athlete on the special day. Congratulations girls!
