Fifteen Student-Athletes Commit to Collegiate Play

Fifteen student-athletes from the Class of 2023 signed symbolic letters of intent at the annual college signing day assembly this week. Parents, coaches, teammates, and friends cheered them on as they committed to continuing their athletic careers in college.

“What a wonderful opportunity to recognize a group of our student-athletes who have earned placement to continue to chase their athletic passions,” said Director of Athletics Josh Smith. “The ability to play at the collegiate level highlights the drive of these young men and women who have worked hard at MICDS to excel in both the classroom and their athletic competitions. We are thrilled to keep watching to see what they will achieve as ambassadors of our programs in the near future.”

At the assembly, Head of School Jay Rainey addressed the signees, “All of you, and our community, are so varied, diverse, and interesting in your very enriching pursuits individually and collectively. I am incredibly proud, on behalf of our school, of everything you’ve achieved and the bright future that awaits you at the collegiate level.”

Students signed their letters in unison and then donned their respective college hats provided by the MICDS Sports Boosters.

Congratulations to our 2023 student-athletes!
