23 student-athletes in La Jolla commit to colleges
More than 20 student-athletes from high schools in La Jolla participated in Signing Day on Nov. 10, committing to play a sport for a National Collegiate Athletic Association college for at least one academic year.
The event, at the Joan B. Kroc Theatre in San Diego, returned to being held in person after being a drive-through affair last year due to pandemic-related restrictions.
Once an athlete signs a letter of intent to attend a college, it is faxed to that college and no other campus may recruit that student.
The Bishop’s School had 12 athletes at the event, La Jolla Country Day School had eight and La Jolla High School had three.
Here is the list of students, with the college to which each committed and in which sport:
