Four Patriots sign LOIs

Posted:

On the day after national signing day, Northside High School had four athletes sign college letters of intent.

Meagan McKay is headed to Georgia Southwestern to play soccer.

"The girls and coaches were very welcoming to me," McKay said. "I feel like I'd be a great fit with the team, and I feel like the school will challenge me athletically as well as academically."

Andrew Leuer was the second of a trio of soccer signees. He's headed to North Georgia, where he hopes to make an immediate impact.

"This year they had a few freshman play," he said. "Next year, I'm looking to play as a freshman, hopefully to make an impact. That's what he recruited me for is to make an impact on the team."

Stephanie Kolwicz was the third soccer signee, headed to Georgia State.

"They're a family, and they welcomed me," Kolwicz said. "I feel like both academically and athletically they'll provide for me."

The lone non-soccer signee was also the lone Division I signee. Tay Sears is headed to Western Kentucky to run track, and says this day almost didn't come.

"I had a rough freshman and sophomore year," he said. "My grades. But I made a total 180 to get here today. I started getting more letters in the mail, started [setting personal records] on the track, so I just figured, I have to tighten it up, get my grades up, and it happened."
