San Ramon student-athletes sign college letters of intent
Wednesday, Feb. 1 was the National Letter of Intent Signing Day for Division I and II college-bound athletes, and twelve SRVHS seniors were the stars of the ceremony on campus.
The twelve senior-athletes were honored in the Commons in front of friends, family, coaches, teachers and photographers. San Ramon Athletic Director John Raynor called out the athletes’ names, colleges they are committed to, and the sport they would continue playing.
Three players from the San Ramon football team attended the signing. Tight end Sean Miller (12) will be attending Cornell University in the fall. Offensive and defensive linemen Matt Fisher (12)and Jake Simonich (12) signed letters to California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo and Utah State University, respectively.
Five senior girls are committed to Division 1 schools for soccer. Midfielder Shannon Hennessy (12) will be playing for University of Pennsylvania and center defender Mandy Davis will be heading to Malibu to attend Pepperdine University. Goalkeeper Beth Ritter (12) will also head south to University of California at Santa Barbara. Meanwhile forward Reilly Parker plans to attend University of North Carolina, and center defender Sam Zarling will be attending Colorado College in the fall.
Three water polo players signed their letters of intent on Wednesday. Megan Rodriguez (12) will be attending Wagner College. Nick Candau (12) will head to Southern California to Pepperdine University and Justin Roberto (12) will stay in the Bay Area and attend Stanford University
One by one, the athletes signed their letters of intent in front of flashing cameras and a proud crowd.
One of San Ramon’s athletes, Zach Kline (12), the famed quarterback of the Wolves, unfortunately could not attend. He had already signed his letter of intent last year and had graduated from San Ramon one month ago at the beginning of January. He was then enrolled at University of California at Berkeley in mid-January.
