WHS athletes sign letters of intent to play at collegiate level
Two WHS seniors signed their letters of intent to take their talents to the next level.
Cameron Daugherty, a multi-sport athlete, made his final decision to attend Bowling Green State University to pursue his baseball career.
Daugherty expressed he is pleased to be attending BGSU and has high hopes of being placed on the field wherever he can. But, as of now his hope his to play infield, outfield and pitch for the Division 1 school.
Daugherty looks forward to being able to play with his brother again, as his brother will be a senior pitcher.
“I would just like to thank my coaches, family and my school for making all of this possible for me,” Daugherty said.
Kevin White, a state and regional cross country participate, signed with Loyola University Chicago.
White signed for cross country and indoor and outdoor track.
For cross country, White will definitely be running an 8k and a 10k as a 600 meter for track, also having high hopes of specializing in the 1,500.
One reason White chose Loyola is the appeal of the fast team and the coaching staff. He also added they have a good education program that will make juggling school and sports easier.
Loyola has had a great deal of success in the 1,500 distance, which White said added to the appeal for him. In order to bring his time up in races, White will follow the training program provided from his coaches and says he will take time to use resources provided by the school too. Running with faster runners will also help White up his competition by being encouraged to keep on moving.
“I’m really honored to continue my running dream in college and I know this is only a reality because of all the support I have received from the people and students of Wooster,” White said.
Andy Kellar, WHS Athletic Director, has enjoyed watching the two athletes gain experience and development.
Athleticism requires an equal share of both mental and physical strength, and Kellar said that he believes Daugherty and White possess both. These combined skills make them talented athletes.
“Both Cameron and Kevin are outstanding student athletes and lead by example. They both work extremely hard and are both three sport athletes and compete at the highest level in all three sports,” Kellar said.
Both athletes are to start their college seasons in the fall with their newly signed schools.
