Athletes Commit to Colleges and Universities on National Signing Day
Almost 100 HISD student athletes signed letters of intent for colleges and universities on Feb. 6, National Signing Day.
High school seniors of both genders have been offered athletic scholarships in a wide variety of sports, including football, basketball, baseball, track and field, swimming, softball, volleyball, wrestling, tennis, and golf.
Perhaps the most unusual offer this year is a lacrosse scholarship that has been extended to Lamar HS student Sara Holland from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia.
HISD Athletics Programs Administrator Scott Crawford noted that lacrosse is the only non-UIL-supported sport to elicit a scholarship offer this year, “so that’s a real tribute to Dr. McSwain and the lacrosse coaches. It says a lot about the strength of Lamar’s program.”
