Whether the commitments were announced that day or earlier in
the academic year, Heritage had 15 reasons to smile for National
Letter of Intent Day.
Heritage High School honored 15 of its student athletes Feb. 4
at the school in Littleton for making their respective commitments
to take their athletic careers to the post-secondary level.
Eagles baseball and boys lacrosse had three athletes from each
program sign with colleges or universities, while the football and
girls soccer programs were represented.
One student from the Heritage girls swimming, boys soccer, girls
basketball, softball and boys tennis were also honored in the
school’s National Letter of Intent Day ceremony.
From the baseball program, Alex Hinz, Morgan Cirbo and Daron
Schulthies put pen to paper. Hinz made a commitment to play ball
for Dakota Wesleyan University.
“Alex is a hard-working outfielder that will someday be a great
coach,” said Eagle baseball coach Scott Hormann.
Both Cirbo and Schulthies agreed to play for Hutchinson
Community College in Kansas.
“There is no doubt that both Daron Schulthies and Morgan Cirbo
will play big- time college baseball after they are finished at
Hutchinson Community College,” Hormann said.
Lacrosse players Kyle Hercher, Taylor Young and Hayden Porter
will take their talents and abilities to a collegiate level.
Hercher stays close to home, having signed with the University of
Denver, while Young inked with Salisbury University in Maryland.
Porter heads to New York to play for Ithaca College.
Girls soccer standouts Kayla Lee and Lexi Sterling will make
their way into the next step. Lee committed to playing at Bucknell
University in Pennsylvania, and Sterling heads to play soccer for
Abilene Christian University in Texas.
Coming off a highly successful football season, Cody Sanders and
receiver Brandon Kaufman agreed to continue their gridiron careers.
Sanders takes his talents south to Colorado State University at
Pueblo, and Kaufman brings his hands and size to Eastern Washington
University in Washington state.
Eagles swimmer Julie Widmann hopes to make a splash in Ohio
having committed to the swim team at Ashland University.
Johnny Ikard signed on for his soccer career to continue at
Loyola Marymount University in California.
Heritage hoopster Liz Little dropped the pen on her agreement to
play women’s basketball in Los Angeles at Occidental College.
Ashley Fischer committed to taking her softball career to
Southwestern Baptist University in Missouri.
Lastly, Heritage’s No. 1 singles tennis player Zach Pendleton
traded in his Eagle feathers for stripes when he agreed to swing
cat gut with the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.
Heritage athletics expects as many as five more Eagles student
athletes to sign commitments before the end of the school year.
