FSHA 5 sign letters of intent

National Letter of Intent day, the day in which athletes sign letters of intent to honor the scholarships offered by the college of their choice, was yesterday and it was a good day for five Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy athletes who signed their letters of intent to their colleges of choice.

It’s not a usual event for Sacred Heart to host a little event for National Letter of Intent, but as Sacred Heart Athletic Director Stephanie Contreras said: “We have so many girls going to colleges next year for sports that we decided it was a good idea to hold a signing day.”

Softball pitcher Jessica Ferri made a commitment to Harvard University, who received her acceptance last November.

Pip Harragin will attend UC Davis, while Sinead Fleming committed to the University of New Mexico; both have received scholarships to play soccer.

“Nobody really gets to experience this. It is a one-in-a-million opportunity and I am so excited,” said Fleming.

Tolog volleyball star Jenna Orlandini signed a full-ride volleyball scholarship to University of Washington. Her Tolog teammate Connor McCracken didn’t sign a letter, but was there signing her acceptance into UCLA. McCracken will walk onto the UCLA volleyball team in the fall.

“It is such a relief because signing is basically your acceptance into college,” said Orlandini, who signed last November.
