Today was National Signing Day, when colleges can officially sign their freshman prospects, and Verona High School used it to recognize seven senior athletes who will be continuing their sports careers in college.

Julia Ashley, honored this week by the Verona Sports Boosters as the girls senior athlete of the week, will be heading south to play for the Division I soccer program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

Caroline Chivily will be playing softball for Hamilton College, a Division III school in upstate New York that is a member of the New England Small College Athletic Conference, a group of schools often referred to as the “Little Ivies”.

As we reported in December, Bill Ferrari and Frank Ferrari will be splitting their team allegiances this fall for the first time in their lives, though they will both be sticking to football. Bill Ferrari will play for the D-III Blue Jays of Johns Hopkins University, while Frank Ferrari will head north to D-I Colgate University.

Claire Fitzpatrick, who scored the winning goal in VHS’ upset victory over New Providence in the semifinals of the North 2 Group 1 state soccer sectionals tournament, will be continuing her soccer play at the University of Scranton, a D-III school.

Ellis Martin also has more soccer ahead of him. Martin, who was the leading scorer on the boys varsity soccer team last fall, is off to Goucher College in Towson, Md., a school that puts as much emphasis on academics and study abroad as it does athletics.

Jake Miller, who has shown strong play for the VHS boys tennis team, will stay on court for West Chester University, a D-II school in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
