A number of local high school athletes will continue their playing careers in college and it all starts with signing on the dotted line.
Wednesday afternoon a number of female student athletes from our area signed their national letters of intent.
Down at Liberty-Benton, Caite Craft becomes the second member of her family to play basketball at The Ohio State University.
Similar to big brother Aaron, Caite de-commited from one school (Kent State) and ended up a Buckeye.
At the time she decided not to attend Kent, she did not know if Ohio State would make an offer until she actually received a phone call.
"I was running, I kid you not, running laps around the locker room," said Craft.
"(I was) up on the benches just running laps, just so excited."
Here's a list of Wednesday's other signees:
Notre Dame Academy
Cat Wells - Toledo (basketball)
Michelle DeHenning - Ashland (volleyball)
Jocelyn Uchic - Clarion (volleyball)
Lisa Urbanski - Owens (volleyball)
Rachael Dzierzak - Ohio State (swimming)
St. Ursula Academy
Cassidy Croci - New Hampshire (volleyball)
Madison Haupricht - Ashland (volleyball)
Maddie Strall - Wheeling Jesuit (volleyball)
Emma Miller - Indiana University (crew)
