Surrounded by coaches, family and friends, two Beaufort High School seniors signed letters of intent to attend college on full athletic scholarships.
Alyssa Martinez signed her letter to attend William Peace University in Raleigh, N.C., and play lacrosse. Her scholarship is the first of its kind to be earned at BHS, since its lacrosse program is only four years old. According to her coachers, her hard work on and off the field, as well as her positive attitude, are hallmarks for others to follow.
Reggie Jones, Jr. also signed his letter of intent to attend Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C., on a duel scholarship in both football and track.
February 7 was National Signing Day across the country for high school student-athletes. Battery Creek’s Sayrend Musgrove and Ahman Smalls also made their college choices, with Musgrove signing with Limestone, and Smalls signing with Newberry College.
