February 4th at San Clemente High School was an exciting and memorable day for Triton athletes.
Joined by their family, friends, and classmates, twenty-six of our own student athletes signed national letter of intents, formally committing to the college of their choice.
On National Signing Day, San Clemente High School had the most student athletes in the district commit to play collegiate athletics.
The signing day ceremony recognized male and female volleyball, baseball, soccer, swim, football, softball, golf, and water polo stars. Principal Halt commended the twenty-six Tritons not only for their achievement in sports, but also for their “academic success”.
San Clemente High School’s 2015 recruiting class demonstrated their talents on and off the field (not to exclude the pool or court) with many school club participants and AP/IB students.
Although many of the athletes have known where they were going for months, February 4th “made it official and took a lot of the stress out of it” said senior and USF soccer commit Santiago DiGiuseppe.
The twenty-six committed Tritons are venturing to schools all across the country, University of Chicago softball senior commit Jordyne Prussak said she is “excited for a change of scenery and ready to embrace a totally new cultural.”
No matter which college team these students will be playing for next year, they are and always will be Tritons.
