Six student-athletes from Santa Margarita Catholic High School made their futures evident on Wednesday, April 13, as they officially signed letters of intent or celebrated their commitment to attend colleges across the country for their sport. The letter of intent is a binding agreement between the student-athlete and a college, by which the student-athlete agrees to attend the college for one academic year.
The following student-athletes signed as part of the NCAA National Letter of Intent Signing Day: Ian Asuncion-Duong committed to the Air Force Academy for men’s swimming and diving.; Ansley McKechnie committed to Loyola Marymount University for women’s rowing; Brooke Slymen committed to Colorado Mesa University for basketball.
The following student-athletes celebrated either their Ivy League, Division 3, NAIA or walk-on school commitments. Ivy League and Division 3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships; therefore, no letter of intent was signed: Jalen Jones committed to Princeton University for football; Nicole Chang committed to Chapman University for women’s golf; Christian Laliberte committed to Benedictine College (Kansas) for football.
