Four Grizzlies attended November’s annual Fall ceremony to sign their National Letter of Intent (NLI), which is a document used to indicate a student-athlete’s commitment to participating National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) colleges and universities in the United States. “Signing Day,” as it is otherwise known, may be attended by prospective student-athletes who will be entering a four-year institution for the first time in the academic year after they sign the letter.
The 4 Grizzlies who have now signed their letters and committed to playing softball in college are (shown from left to right): Lainey Hanehan (University of Northern Colorado), Sydney Frankenberger (Cal Poly, SLO), Natalie Depasquale (Willamette University), and Alexis Burt (Simpson University).
A second “Signing Day” will take place in February, when more softball Grizzlies will sign their NLI. Additional information about these incredible seniors and their future colleges, can be found throughout this News section.
Congratulations to our 4 (so far!) college-bound softball players! Go Grizzlies!
