“I’m really looking forward to all the opportunities I will have to compete in the sport I love while getting a great education and forming a brotherhood like no other,” said Walters.

Davion Bradford

Bradford will be continuing his athletic career in Division l basketball at Kansas State University.
Bradford’s commitment was one that had everyone waiting. After getting 22 division one offers, Bradford had to narrow it down to just one.
“I chose Kansas State because they have been recruiting me the hardest out of all the schools,” Bradford said. “I loved it when I went to my official visit there and I’ve built a close relationship with the coaches, especially since they showed a lot of interest and loyalty in me,” said Bradford when asked why he chose Kansas State.
Bradford is really looking forward to seeing himself progress every day and becoming opponents with his St. Louis friends on the court while playing for Kansas State.

Madison Ledbetter

Ledbetter will be continuing her athletic career at Quincy University for soccer.
“I chose to commit to Quincy because I really like how the campus is small and a majority of the students are student-athletes, and I really like the girls on the team,” said Madison Ledbetter.
Madison Ledbetter has many people she’d like to thank that helped get her to where she is today.
“I would like to thank my parents for pushing me throughout my life, my two club coaches that helped me build my confidence, and Coach Merritt and Coach Casey for making the last four years of high school so much fun and for teaching me new things,” said Madison Ledbetter.
Madison’s goal for her first year is to get a starting position.

Grace Ledbetter

Ledbetter will also be continuing her athletic career at Quincy University for soccer with her sister.
Grace chose Quincy because she knew that after high school, she wouldn’t be able to give up on the sport. Also, after meeting with the coaches and girls on the team, the bond with them immediately clicked.
Grace has many goals for her first year at Quincy University.
“My goals for the first year are to keep up my grades and hopefully work my way up to becoming a starter, as well as staying in shape and keeping my old friendships while making new ones,” said Grace Ledbetter.
Good luck to Grace Ledbetter as she continues her athletic career at Quincy.

Emma Hubbell

Hubbell has committed to Lindenwood University to further her running career.
“I decided on Lindenwood because they had the best opportunity for me with school and a great exercise science program and their team is on the smaller side so everyone becomes like a family. They also are very successful and almost all of their runners PR their first year there,” said Emma Hubbell.
Hubbell seems to have many personal goals for herself in her first year at Lindenwood.
“My goal is to PR in the 5k which is 19:48. I also want to complete a whole year without being injured because I tend to get injured every track season, so being healthy is my number one goal,” said Hubbell.
Emma Hubbell deserves nothing but the best as she continues her running career at Lindenwood.

Christian Harvey

Harvey has committed to Meramec Community College to continue his baseball career.
“I chose to commit to Meramec because when I went on a visit there, the campus seemed like the best fit for me and I knew their baseball program was something I wanted to be a part of,” said Harvey.
Harvey is really looking forward to playing college ball next year and is hoping to raise his GPA, so that he can eventually get to a university.

“My sophomore year it will be an NCAA sport,” said Torrence.
Torrence will have plenty of time to get ready for the best competition he has ever faced.

Abigail Miller

Miller decided to continue her athletic career at Arkansas State University to play D1 soccer.
When she asked why she chose Arkansas State, she didn’t hesitate to answer.
“I committed to Arkansas state because everyone would always say that I would just know when I’m at the right college because it’ll feel like home and I never really thought I would have that feeling because I’ve visited so many colleges before and I’ve never had that feeling. When I walked on the campus and was talking to the coaches, it just felt like home and I felt like my future was going to mean more than just soccer there,” said Abigail Miller.
Miller is really looking forward to college and especially getting out of Missouri to experience something new.
“I am honestly so excited for college,” said Miller. “I was nervous at first, but the more and more information that I get and I’m getting closer to my other teammates that are in my class. It all is becoming so much more exciting,” Miller said.
Good luck to Abigail Miller as she furthers her athletic career at Arkansas State University.
