National Signing Day: Ballard

Jacob Ta’ase (Central Washington football), Bailey Travis (Northwest University soccer), Isabelle Marquez (University Massachusetts Lowell soccer) and Emily Dunn (Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute soccer) celebrated National Signing Day in front of a small group of friends and family Wednesday at Ballard High School. A personal touch for each: handmade signs behind each of their tables.

After everyone indulged in doughnuts, juice and coffee, and athletic director Carrie Burr shared her excitement for the moment, she allowed a coach from both the football and soccer team to say a few words about the athletes. Then, it was time for the action, as each student signed their name to a single white sheet of paper before excitedly taking pictures with those who came out to support them.

Good morning from Ballard, as we kick off National signing Day with four students. #stpreps
