The athletes showcased their skills on the playing field, but also demonstrated the discipline and determination necessary to succeed in both sports and academics.

“ It was something that honestly seemed impossible for me to do… I had to worry about my GPA and my ACT/ SAT scores, and making sure I had enough AP credits,” said senior, Darmouth commit, Jordyn LeBeau.

Parents and guardians looked on with pride and joy as their seniors officially committed to continuing their athletic dreams after graduation. Coaches shared words of encouragement and congratulated the student-athletes on their accomplishments, recognizing the countless hours of practice and dedication that led to this significant achievement.

The event served as an inspiration to aspiring athletes within the school, demonstrating that with hard work and dedication, they too can achieve their goals and continue their athletic pursuits when they depart from Eagle High.

“I am super proud of all of our athletes. It’s inspiring to see them work so hard and be able to balance academics and sports,” said sophomore Amanda Carpenter.

As the ink dried on each commitment letter, Eagle High not only celebrated the individual successes of these student-athletes but also reinforced its reputation as a hub for developing well-rounded, accomplished individuals who excel both on and off the court.

The Eagle High community looks forward to following these athletes’ continued success as they embark on the next chapter of their athletic journeys at the collegiate level. These well-rounded athletes serve as inspiration for individuals throughout the school, who may even wish to play collegiate sports someday.
