By Fred J. Robledo South Hills’ Natalie Lugo was just a freshman when she announced her intention to sign a national letter of intent with the University of Flordia, one of the best collegial softball programs in the country, putting her pen to paper to finally make it official.
“It’s amazing, I’ve been waiting for this since Valentine’s day my freshman year,” Lugo said. “I’m just excited to see what’s in store the next four years.”
Bishop Amat baseball’s Jayson Gonzalez and South Hills’ Jacob Amaya have been amongst the best in the country in their age for a long time and a big reason why both have been on varsity since their freshman years.
Amaya finished his intention of signing with Cal State Fullerton and Gonzalez with Vanderbilt, and they along with Lugo joined a massive amount of San Gabriel Valley high school senior athletes that realized their dreams on Wednesday by signing national letters of intent.
“I knew back when I was a sophomore and took a visit to Vanderbilt it was the right place,” Gonzalez said. “It’s always been a dream to sign with them.”
Whether athletes singed full scholarships, partical scholarships, or announced intentions to sign with Division II, III or NAIA schools, it was all the result of years of hard work, dedication, and a moment to sit back and feel proud.
After more than 40 athletes in the San Gabriel Valley signed letters of intent during sign ceremonies at their high schools, they visited the San Gabriel Valley Tribune office later in the day donning their future college shirts and hats to pose and congratulate each other.
South Hills baseball, which won the CIF Southern Section Division 2 title last spring, had five players sign. Along with Amaya, Karlos Morales (Long Beach State), Jake Dominguez (Cal State Fullerton), John Dearth (San Diego State) and Zach Bromstead (Cal State Bakersfield) showed why the Huskies’ baseball team is so dominant.
Damien had three talented baseball players sign, which included Isaiah Paige (University of Michigan), Kalani Matton (Cornell) and Harrison Spohn (Cal Baptist). In addition to Gonzalez, Bishop Amat had two more signees with Isaac Esqueda (USC) and Jesus Maldonado (Azusa Pacific).
Bonita had two with Nathan Schneider (St. Mary’s College), Jarret Lindsay (Point Loma) and Walnut’s Dylan Zavala and Dylan Needham both signed with the University of New Mexico.
Other baseball signees included San Dimas’ Joseph Bahna (San Marcos), Glendora’s Hayden Pearce (Cal State San Berndin), Wilson’s Matthew Rodriguez (University of New Mexico), Cathedral’s Omar Veloz (Fresno State). and Whittier Christian’s Isaiah Carreon (Cal State University San Bernardino).
In boys basketball, Damien’s Joe Quintana, a first team all-area Tribune selection, signed with Loyola Marymount.
More than a dozen softball players signed.
St. Lucy’s led the area with three signees, including Dakota Casper (Cal Poly San Luuis Opispo), Alyssa Avalos (Baylor), and Giana Ceccerelli (Bryant University).
Los Altos, Bonita and Glendora had two each.
Bonita’s Destinee Lopez (Metro State Denver), Lauren Flores (University of Hawaii-Hilo), Glendora’s Taylor Tetone (Grand Canyon University), Amanda Woods (Azusa Pacific) and Los Altos’ Andrea Wood (Cal State San Marcos) and Elise Oliande (St. Thomas Aquinas ) all signed.
Other softball signees were San Dimas’ Brooke Jackson (Concordia), Charter Oak’s Marissa Chavez (Brigham Young); Bishop Amat’s Madeline Ramirez (Cal State East Bay) and Webb’s Elyse Morris (Saint John’s, New York).
It was also the early signing period for other sports, including girls basketball, where Tribune reigning player of the year, Rowland’s Tianna Eaton, made her decision this week to sign with UC Riverside. Bonita’s Alyssa Ono signed to play girls basketball with UC Merced.
“I’m realy excited UCR has great things in store for me and the coaches are great,” Eaton said. “I’m glad I’m close to home so everyone can support me.”
In girls volleyball, signees included St. Lucy’s Brennan Miller (Houston Baptist), Jenna Bailey (Lafayette College), Bonita’s Sahara Martinez (University of Texas El Paso) and Glendora’s Emma Svagdis (Azusa Pacific).
St. Lucy’s Sabrina Garabet (USC), Los Altos’ Brooke Contreras (Univeristy of Pacific) and Charter Oak’s Katie Fugit (Cal Baptist) all signed in girls water polo.
Glendora’s Alexis Margett (University of Michigan), Diamond Bar’s Kathleen Gani (University of Pacific) and Walnut’s Emily Honng (UCLA), signed in swimming.
Walnut’s Keisha Lugito (Seattle University) and Anabelle Chang (Princeton) signed letters for golf scholarships.
Damien’s Zach Shinnick is headed to USC for track and Glendora’s Lauren Navarro to prestigious Standford for gymnastics.
All in all, it was a proud day in the SGV.
