November 18, 2016- Three Elizabethtown Area High School seniors recently accepted scholarships at the school’s National Signing Day event. Joining the athletes on their special day were their families, teammates, coaches, faculty members, and administration in the high school auditorium as each was introduced.

The coaches read off the many accolades earned by each student-athlete and wished them success at the next level. The lengthy list of accomplishments included common themes for all like Lancaster-Lebanon League all-stars, team captains and MVP awards, as well as a long list of leadership qualities. The special program was a day of great pride and celebration for the Bears stars.

The honorees were as follows:

Kayla Beach – Volleyball – Millersville University
Olivia Farwell – Bowling – Duquesne University
Kirsten Mumma – Softball – Mount St. Mary’s University

Less than two percent of high school athletes play at the post-secondary level. On National Signing Day, high school seniors throughout the county accepted athletic scholarships to attend colleges and universities throughout the U.S.
