Over the last several weeks, players from around the region have made the decision to continue their athletic careers in college.
It started back in October with two of the earliest signees begin Taylor Arnold and Ayshia Bettlack of Blue Eye who will continue their basketball careers at Evangel Unversity in Springfield.
Blue Eye had another Student-Athlete make a college commitment as earlier this month Christian Mithchell signed to join College of the Ozarks as a member of the Bobcat Basketball Squad.
Branson had a pair of athletes sign earlier this month as Britt Pierce will participate in the Track and Field Program at Lehigh University while Emily Adams will play Softball at Cottey College in Nevada, Mo.
