SENIOR FIELD HOCKEY players Sarah Spear (left), Kylie Levine and Zoe Campisi prepare to sign letters of intent as Coach Rountree sings the praises of each player. Falson field hockey is a powerhouse, winning 21 state championships, two of them in the last two years.

National Signing Day is an annual event held on February 5 throughout the country, as student-athletes prepare to turn the page, graduate from high school and move on to the next chapter of their lives.

On this special day, 13 of the school’s seniors sat on stage in the auditorium in front of family, teachers, and peers to ultimately commit to the [respective] university or college of their choice by signing a binding ‘letter of intent’ to play a collegiate sport for the next four years.

Thus, as the student athletes sit stoically, wearing clothing that represents their choice school and waiting for kind words from their coaches, they must silently reminisce over the last four years and how their passion to succeed in their sport has led to this moment in time.
