Spring Signing Day

The Karcher Center Lobby was filled with happy families and athletes on the morning of April 11.  After Athletic Director Tom Tice led the crowd in prayer, he introduced the following athletes as they signed their letters of intent to play college sports:

Julia Gonzalez – Whittier College track & field

Allison Lou – Whittier College basketball

Kami Merrill – Lewis & Clark College softball

Brittney Pinzon – US Merchant Marine Academy volleyball

Lauren Tapia – Whittier College water polo

Georgia Vargas – Siena College water polo

The morning was full of lots of congratulatory hugs, good food and hundreds of photos!

In a special moment, alumna Alexis Pinzon '16, who is studying in Geneva, Switzerland, managed to Skype with her family to see her younger sister, Brittney, sign her college commitment.  A lovely use of technology!  

Also a nice touch, Angela Ward and Greg Chavez, both graduates of Whittier College, made sure to be at the celebration to acknowledge the THREE Royals who are on their way to becoming Poets.  Mr. Chavez wore a purple shirt and a Whittier hat in their honor!

It was a great day to be a Royal!
