Six BCHS athletes sign letters of intent

National signing day, an event where a high school athlete signs a national letter of intent pledging their commitment to compete for a university at the collegiate level, took place Wednesday, Nov. 11, and Boulder City High School was well represented.

Fulfilling their dreams of becoming collegiate athletes, six athletes from four sports signed, showing the quality of talent at the school.

Highlighting the group, a trio from the three-time defending 3A girls volleyball state champions signed to their respective universities. Senior Kamry Bailey signed with Division I program University of Utah, Sierra Orton signed with Division II program Arkansas Tech University. Senior Ava Wright rounded out the trio, finding a home with NAIA program Westcliff University in Irvine, where she’ll play beach volleyball.

For the boys, the Eagles athletic program will send at least one star each to college this year in basketball, golf and swimming. All signing to Division I universities were senior swimmer Joe Purdy (University of Denver), golfer Blake Schaper (South Dakota State University at Brookings) and basketball star Ethan Speaker (University of Arkansas at Little Rock).

Additional stories highlighting these accomplishments will appear in next week’s issue.
