SLOHS Students’ College Sports Opportunities


   Wednesday, November 14 was a day of big commitments for several San Luis Obispo High School athletes. These athletes were all given the opportunity to sign their Letters of Intent for the colleges they had been recruited by for their certain sport. Letters of Intent are sent to prospective student-athletes once they have verbally committed to compete in a sport for that school. Signing the letter solidifies the athlete’s dedication to being a collegiate athlete at the Division one or two level. Seniors Molly Eppright, Maddie Johnson, Olivia Ortiz, and Molly Massman were among those who got to sign their letters on this exciting day.

Expressions: What school and sport are you signing for?

Senior Molly Eppright: I signed to go to Fresno State for volleyball.

Senior Maddie Johnson: Humboldt State University to play soccer.

Senior Olivia Ortiz: I am signing with Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo to play soccer there.

Senior Molly Massman: I am signing with the University of Montana to play soccer.

Expressions: Were there any factors that helped you make your decision to attend this school?

Massman: When deciding on this school meeting all the coaching staff and getting to interact with the team really helped because they were all so welcoming and excited.
