Ten Mira Costa athletes participated in National Collegiate Athletic Association Signing Day today during lunch, officially committing them to play their respective sports in college.

Costa Vice Principal Jon Shaw gave a biography on each student’s athletic career and announced the school they will attend in the fall. Students’ sports include cross country, volleyball and water polo.

“It is pretty nice knowing where I am going to go and what I what to do,” Costa senior Zack Saros said, who signed to play football for Pacific University. “I definitely had a lot of options, so it was a hard decision but now that I am done it’s good to be over.”

This Signing Day was the third and final one of the school year. The next NCAA Signing Day will be next year, with a new group of senior athletes.

“I think it is a good example for the rest of our student body to have success in extracurriculars and sports on the field and also in the classroom because these [students] are just the epitome of a Costa student,” Shaw said.

Kelli Mark committed to Emerson College for lacrosse.

Lauren Nielsen committed to UC Berkeley for crew.

Sierra Andrade committed to UC Santa Barbara for cross country.

Melia Chittenden committed to Princeton University for cross country.
