National Signing Day for sports other than football and basketball took place on Wednesday, Nov. 13 with 15 Baylor seniors signing national letters of intent, three times more than any other area school. Three other seniors are firmly committed to sign similar letters in February to play football.
The Baylor student-athletes will be playing six different sports at 17 different colleges or universities. Baylor School athletic director Thad Lepcio anticipates another 10-15 student-athletes will sign scholarships in the spring.
According to Lepcio, nearly 100 Baylor alumni are currently competing in a variety of sports at the college level. “I am proud for these student-athletes and their families and happy that they will be able to pursue their academic and athletic dreams,” said Lepcio. “Baylor continues to be a leader in the number of student-athletes who go on to play beyond high school, and that is a testament to how we prepare them to take the next step in their careers."
