Eleven Berkeley Student-Athletes Commit To Play College Sports
On April 17, 11 student-athletes from Berkeley Preparatory School committed to compete in their collegiate sport of choice in a joint ceremony in front of a standing-room-only crowd of classmates, faculty, and family members. Those committing to compete for a Division 1 program signed the National Letter of Intent.
“Currently, Berkeley has 55 alumni participating in varsity collegiate athletics. This winter, five Berkeley student-athletes from the Class of 2019 made that commitment, and today, we’re proud to announce that 11 more now join them,” said Athletic Director Bobby Reinhart. “All of them have proudly donned the Buccaneer uniform and represented Berkeley admirably. Each has proven that athletic excellence can co-exist with exemplary performance in the classroom. Congratulations to you all – we are so proud of you.”
Signing Day has become an annual tradition at Berkeley honoring the hard work and dedication of our senior Buccaneers, who will continue their academic and athletic endeavors at some of the country’s top colleges and universities.
