A San Diego Hall of Champions ceremony November 11 saw 204 high school seniors either sign a letter of intent to play college athletics or simulate a signing, and the athletes included eight from San Marcos High School, San Pasqual High School, Mission Hills High School, and Calvin Christian High School along with four seniors who will be playing for Cal State San Marcos.
High school seniors in certain sports were allowed to sign National Collegiate Athletic Association letters of intent on November 11. Incoming military academy freshmen do not sign letters of intent, nor do athletes entering Ivy League, NCAA Division III, or other non-scholarship programs, but the Hall of Champions utilizes the simulated signing to recognize the transition of those student-athletes into college sports.
Seniors who do not sign a letter of intent during the early signing period will be able to sign during the period beginning February 3, which is also the earliest day football, boys water polo, and soccer players may sign NCAA letters of intent, and the Hall of Champions will have a ceremony that day.
The November 11 signing ceremony included four San Marcos High School seniors. Chloe Evering will play volleyball at the University of Albany. Lindsay Ladman will swim at the University of Pennsylvania. Johnny McWilliams will continue his basketball career at Fresno State. Ryli Quinn will be on the University of San Diego lacrosse team.
San Pasqual High School’s Jess Manley will play beach volleyball at the University of Arizona. Haley Moore of San Pasqual High School will golf at the University of Arizona.
Calvin Christian senior Sara Wagenveld will be a two-sport athlete at Azusa Pacific University, participating in volleyball during the fall and track and field during the spring.
Mission Hills senior Madison Stanich is headed to Durango, Colorado, where she will play softball for Fort Lewis College.
Two La Costa Canyon baseball players signed with Cal State San Marcos; Reed Labar is a second baseman and Griffin Teisher is an outfielder. Vista High School senior Brianna Porter will play basketball at Cal State San Marcos. La Jolla Country Day senior Savannah Magallon will be on the Cougars’ golf team.
