This past week, four Alter senior girls signed to four different Division I colleges to continue their athletics in college. These four ladies chose to sign in the first signing date, which began on Wednesday, November 11th and concluded on Wednesday, November 18th.

The first signer, Hayley Combs, a dedicated basketball player, decided to continue using her talents at Northern Kentucky University located in Highland Heights, Kentucky. She signed on Friday, November 13th, and many of her teammates and friends were excited to support her in this important moment. Hayley has been a varsity basketball player at Alter since her freshman year and helped lead the girls’ basketball team to a state title last year.

The second signer, Claire Golba, a swimmer who specializes in backstroke and breaststroke, signed to swim at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. She signed this past Monday, November 16th, and was very grateful for all the support from her friends who came to watch her sign. Claire has placed third at state these past two years and is looking for a state title this year in the 100 backstroke.

The third and fourth signers chose to sign together in the cafeteria on Tuesday, November 17th. Claire Schuermann, a two-time diving state champion, chose at the last minute to declare her intent to Auburn University, located in Auburn Alabama. Abby Nichols, the 2015 cross country state champion and a dedicated track runner as well, committed to run track and cross country at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Both of the girls had  a very large audience of supporting friends and family excited to celebrate their accomplishments.

In the past week at Alter High School, we have gained a Norse, Green Wave, War Eagle/Tiger, and a Buckeye, and we look forward to seeing where more athletes decide to commit.
