Friends and family members sat in the dimly lit campus theater to support the NCAA-bound Eastlake Wolves on National Signing Day. Athletic director Pat Bangasser kicked off the ceremony by introducing each of the athletes and brought out their coaches to have them give a brief comment about their former players.

Eastlake girls soccer coach Chuck Krieble gave a moving speech about Jodi Ulkekul (Gonzaga) as he recalled her last day with the team. She asked him if there was anything else she could do for him or the players, even though she already had a foot out the door. Krieble said he’ll always remember the selfless attitude of the 2014 team captain.

“Gonzaga is extremely privileged to have her in their program,” Krieble said.

Brooke Randall, who didn’t play competitive volleyball until her 10th grade, signed with Whitman College. Tosh Samkange, a soccer player who was a starting central defender on the Seattle Sounders Academy Under-16 team for the  2012-2013 season, signed with the University of Denver. 

Other athletes who signed: boys swimmer Jackson Berman (Denison), diver Kaela Call (BYU) and equestrian Charlotte Selby (Baylor).
