It was a proud moment in the St. David's library yesterday, November 17th, while friends, family, teachers, coaches and supporters of our golf signees gathered to share in the celebration and honoring of our athletes and their accomplishments. Those accomplishments and hard work have now officially allowed them the opportunity to continue their love the game of golf at the next level - in college!
Michael LaSasso and Davis Adams each signed their National Letter of Intent to play at the collegiate level at their committed universities, North Carolina State University and The College of William & Mary, respectively. After a small opening and prayer Athletic Director, Ricardo Viera, said a few encouraging words about the boys and their hard work to improve their game throughout their high school career. In their time here at St. David's they have helped bring about three State Championships and they still have a season left to claim all four!
Both boys had the support of their families and coaches in attendance and when they each got up to speak they mentioned how grateful they were for the encouragement, coaching and unconditional love and care they had gotten through the years, specifically from their parents, family and their golf coaches. It was a touching moment to see all their hard work culminate in a public display of celebration and to make official their intentions to continue their efforts at the impressive level of NCAA Division I golf. We look forward to following them in their last high school season and as they continue on to help their college golf team. On behalf of Davis and Michael, Go Tribe! and Go Pack! And thank you to the people who came to be with us in the library yesterday.
