Signing day across the region

By  | 

Signing day is here, and high school athletes from around the region are putting pen to paper to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level.

Wednesday marked the early signing period for division 1 basketball, and the initial signing date for all other division 1 and 2 sports besides football.

At Hidden Valley High School, three Titans signed their national letters of intent.

Kacie Hanson will be making the short trip to Blacksburg to play lacrosse at Virginia Tech.

Collin Myburgh will be joining her to swim for the Hokies Swim and Dive team.

Sean Gibbons is headed to Longwood University to pitch for the Lancers baseball team.

At Northside, Vikings standout Tracey Hueston is headed to the ACC.

She'll be continuing her basketball career as a member of the Pitt Panthers.

A three-sport athlete, Hueston is less than 200 total points shy of becoming Northside's all-time leading scorer in women's basketball.

At Liberty High School in Bedford, standout pitcher Millie Thompson is also going to the Atlantic Coast Conference, signing on to join the Clemson softball team.

Thompson tossed a two-hitter to lead Liberty to the Class 3 state softball title last season, the first in school history.

Lord Botetourt's Meredith Wells officially signed on to continue her softball career at James Madison University.

Her teammate, Lauren Hoffman, is also moving on to play softball at Presbyterian College.

Miette Veldman will be joining Meredith in Harrisonburg. She's playing on JMU's volleyball team.

Taylor Robertson is also playing volleyball at UNC-Greensboro.

At Brookville, senior Madison Harris signed a letter of intent to continue her softball career at UVA next year. Harris was one of 15 teens selected for the U-17 Women's National softball team.

Congratulations to all of the athletes and their families!
