In a Nov. 10 ceremony, Six Archbishop Carroll senior girls signed National Letters of Intent to play a sport in college.

“I am very excited to sign, and cannot wait for my next endeavors, and I am grateful for all that Carroll has done for me,” said Kiley Mottice, a senior lacrosse player.

Mottice was among four girls lacrosse players who signed letters of intent.  She signed to play at the University of North Carolina. Additionally, Emma Talago signed to play at Loyola University, Katie Koroly signed to play at Wingate University in North Carolina, and Shannon Wood signed to play at Shippensburg University. Two girls basketball players also signed letters of intent. Maggie Grant signed to play at Villanova University and Grace O’Neill signed to play at Drexel University. 

“Mrs. Shields [girl’s basketball coach] did a really nice job talking about us and making our day extra special,” O’Neill said.

Grant, O’Neill, Mottice, Talago, Koroly, and Wood signed their letters in the presence of their friends and family members.

“I thought that it was very nice to be surrounded by my friends and family who have supported me through my basketball journey as I signed my letter,” Grant said.
