The Fayetteville High School gymnasium played host to yet another college signing ceremony. Nine student-athletes signed National Letters Intent to continue their playing careers at the college level.
"It's the best feeling ever," said Volleyball Athlete Paige Gocke who will be attending Armstrong Atlantic University next fall. "I worked so hard over the past three years and it's nice to know that it paid off."
Gocke is one of 24 senior athletes who has signed a National Letter of Intent. This senior class has been one of the best Fayetteville High School has ever seen.
"We've known it was going to be like this for a long time," said Cameron Paschke, who will signed with College of the Ozarks for basketball. "I've been playing with these same guys since elementary school and all of them are signing as well. We have such an impressive class."
Having 24 athletes continuing their careers at the next level is extremely impressive. All of their success is a tribute to their hard work and dedication.
"We are awful proud of these kids," said Athletic Director Barry Gebhart. "They set a standard and a mark that is going to be hard to duplicate next year."
Don't expect 24 to be the final number of signees. The school expects four or five more student athletes to sign before the school year ends.
