Utah Valley University baseball commit Adam Smith ’24, University of California San Diego baseball commit Austin Bowker ’24 and St. Mary’s University MN basketball commit Daniel Cabeen ’24 and more sign their letters of intent to play collegiate sports during Signing Day Nov. 8. Smith and Bowker were the only two baseball players to commit, and Cabeen was the only basketball player to sign.

The clock reads 6:45 a.m. Nov. 8. Students, friends, family and teachers alike shuffle into the cafeteria, finding seats and reading through pamphlets offered at the door.

The clock strikes 7 a.m. on National Signing Day, and the future of the 13 Jaguars committing to play collegiate sports, begins.

Colorado Mesa University (CMU) soccer commit Olivia Barrett ‘24 shakes Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Tom Brieske’s hand in the gym during National Signing Day Nov. 8. A total of 13 students signed to play sports including baseball, volleyball, beach volleyball, swimming, basketball and soccer in college. “During Signing Day, it felt really awesome to put my name down and represent the Mesa beach team at Rock Canyon,” CMU beach volleyball commit Ava Blanco ‘24 said. “I am the first collegiate beach athlete to commit [from] Rock Canyon, so that was super exciting. Also, to know that I’m officially signing to such an awesome college [is exciting].” (media by Quinn Barton)
To start off the ceremony, Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Tom Brieske began with a speech to all the athletes.

This year was the first time in school history that a fall signing ceremony was held instead of just the usual winter and spring ceremonies, due to the record-breakingly large number of senior athletes signing.

Then, each coach took time to speak about each of their athletes individually. Pens were put to paper while photographs were taken of each student and Principal Andrew Abner made the closing speech, thanking the athletes, coaches and families for their support.

After the athletes finished signing, they celebrated with their friends and families with donuts, photos in their college gear and more.
