National signing day is a very special milestone for student athletes, who sign the National Letter of Intent (NLI) of the college they will attend and continue playing their sport.

On April 11, 2018 six of our seniors were able to sign the NLI: Georgia Vargas (Water polo), Lauren Tapia (Water polo), Brittney Pinzon (Volleyball), Kami Merrill (Softball), Allison Lou (Basketball), and Julia Gonzalez (Track and Field). A memorable experience for each senior athlete, the signing ceremony is proof of their hard work and dedication to their sport.

Fun fact, 3 out of the 6 seniors will be attending Whittier College: Allison, Julia, and Lauren. Alumnus Mr. Chavez and Alumna Mrs. Ward attended Whittier College as well and were extremely proud of these Royals. Go Whittier College Poets!

The time and dedication student athletes put into playing the sport they love and cherish isn’t easy. It takes determination, discipline, and countless days of practice to get to the level these girls have reached.

For most of these girls, the sports they will be paying in college have been a part of their lives since their childhood, and signing their letter made their families proud as well.

RR: What made you choose the school you committed to?

Lauren: The reason I chose to continue my athletic and academic career at Whittier was because when I did my recruiting trip, it was completely different from all the other ones I did. The people were more inviting, and I love the campus. Plus I wanted to stay close to home because my family is a very important part of my life, so Whittier was the perfect school for me.
