Senior Megan Strait signed her letter of intent to play volleyball at Coffeyville Community College in a ceremony February 20. Megan said she looks forward to her time there. “They have one of the best programs in D2 Juco, won the national championship twice, and got third in the last 3 years. I like the small town feel and how close everyone is. Delice (Downing) is an amazing coach and an amazing person, she connects with the girls as a mom figure rather than just being a coach all the time.”
Senior Autymn Schriener signed her National Letter of Intent Wednesday to play softball at Washburn University. Being a multi-sport athlete, Schriener had plenty of college options. She also excelled at tennis, basketball and volleyball during her time at WHS. She said softball was the obvious choice for her. “Ever since I was 10 and went to the Softball College World Series to watch, I told myself that I would be one of them one day. Softball has also always been my favorite sport so I couldn’t imagine doing anything else at the next level,” Schriener said.
Senior Madelyn Hutley had many in attendance to watch her sign her National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Washburn University. Hutley signed Friday afternoon in the WHS commons. Speakers including summer coaches, WHS coaches and her mother, principal Jan Hutley, spoke about her time at WHS and her love of basketball. “As her mom, I’m most grateful and proud of who she is on the inside — her sassy, spirited, no-nonsense personality. I’m not gonna lie, it’s been difficult to tame over the years. But that same personality is what makes her a joy to be around,” Hutley said. “We have a wonderful time together, and I also think that’s what makes her a great player.”
