Two senior student-athletes have signed on to continue their athletic careers after high school at the college level.
Seniors Kamryn Stark and Jared Shriver each signed at a community college to play sports next year, along with furthering their education. Stark signed at Cloud County Community College with a volleyball scholarship, and Shriver signed at Pratt Community College with a track and cross country scholarship.
Stark officially signed her letter of intent at Cloud on February 14 and she will have a school signing with coaches and family tomorrow.
“It means a lot that I get to continue my volleyball career and I am very thankful that Cloud gave me the opportunity to do so next season,” Stark said. “I’m really excited to keep playing volleyball outside of high school.”
Shriver officially signed on January 19 at PCC with his parents and coaches in attendance. He then had a mock signing at Skyline with the same people along with his teammates.
“Ever since I was a little kid I had always had a dream of being a college athlete. It never crossed my mind to go to school just as a student,” Shriver said. “It means so much to be able to continue doing what I love at the next level and I’m forever grateful for the opportunity. It goes to show that as long as you work hard and follow your dreams you can achieve anything.”
Shriver will begin summer training workouts he received from his coach after the State track meet. He starts official team practice in August. Stark also has workouts from her coach to do this spring and summer before beginning team practice in early August.
