On Wednesday, Nov. 14, seniors Gabby Hentemann and Baby Hang signed their letters of intent to play cross country and softball respectively. They were met by a large crowd in the large group instruction room, full of family and friends supporting them.

They were two of four total seniors signing that day, along with seniors Avolyn Lepo and Avery Strohmeyer, both of whom will play collegiate volleyball at Oakland University and Lake Superior State University, respectively. Hentemann will be attending Oklahoma State University while Hang will attend Ferris State University.

For Hang, the fall 0f 2019 can’t come soon enough.

The atmosphere in general is one of the most important reasons to choose a college, as they all have unique characteristics.

“I’m looking forward to the college experience,” Hang said.

Hang will be attending Ferris State University to play softball, but she also played volleyball. She signed, and was greeted by her softball and volleyball teammates. She cited a variety of reasons for heading to Ferris State.

“Ferris was far from home, but not too far from home,” Hang said. “It’s up north too, which is really nice.”

Meeting the coaches and the people around that program are also a huge determining factor in choosing a school. They have to be just what the athlete wants to make that important of a decision.

For Hentemann, who is one of the leaders of the girls cross country team, she had to think of what she wanted in attending a school and Oklahoma State had what she wanted.

“Definitely competing with a team who is at my level and who will be able to push me and have girls to catch,” Hentemann said. “I really love the coaches and I love the people, so I decided to go on the visit. I just felt like I was home.”
