On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, two college-bound Sycamore High School seniors took part in athletic signing ceremonies for their respective sports and colleges.

Upon graduating from Sycamore, senior Raegan Hunter will be attending Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville to play softball. Hunter boasts 13 years of softball experience, including her time at Sycamore where she started all four years. Throughout her time as a War Eagle, she was twice named All-District and All-Tournament and was presented with the Golden Glove Award her junior year. Hunter also helped lead her travel team to the 2020 USSSA National Championship, and in both 2017 and 2018, they won the National Runner-Up title.

While at Trevecca, which Hunter chose due to the culture surrounding the softball program and the academics, Hunter plans to earn her nursing degree while helping her new team compete for the NCAA National Championship.

"Getting to this day has been a lot of hard work, but today was worth every minute," Hunter says. "Being able to share such a special day with friends, family, and coaches made it even more exciting than I ever dreamed."

Hunter is forever thankful to her parents as well as past and present coaches who have helped her along the way: Coach Tyree, Coach Daws, Coach Jacquelyn Slayton, Coach Cody King, Coach Lea Hunter, and Bo Sanders.

Later that afternoon, senior wrestler Logan Heckert signed with Campbell University in North Carolina.

A three-time region champion and two-time state champion, Heckert aims to finish out his career as a War Eagle by adding yet another title. Over his years at Sycamore, he has also earned All-American status and has been named to many All-Midstate and All-State teams. To date, he boasts 172 career wins and 127 career pins.

"I would like to thank my family for always believing in me, and all of my coaches and drill partners that have pushed me to this point," Heckert says.

While at Campbell University, Heckert will major in exercise science, minor in business, and eventually get his MBA in fitness and wellness management.
