Three lacrosse players – Meredith Eitel (Saint Leo University), Emma Meyer (Gardner-Webb) and Darby Moore (Queens University of Charlotte) – were recognized in November after announcing they would be playing at the collegiate level.

“They all represent the school well. They’re all great student-athletes,” said Athletic Director Dan Dobronz. “For some of the kids [playing high school sports] is the best part of their day – exercising, socializing and competing with their friends.

“It’s great being back out there on the field, in the fresh air playing the sport that they love,” he added.

In total, 27 seniors have committed to play Division I, II and III sports at colleges and universities across the country.

“Looking at the picture [of all the athletes who participated in the ceremony], what a diverse group it is. It’s a great mix of kids,” Dobronz said. “So many sports are represented. It shows we’re not just a one-sport school. The teams are competitive. The kids are competitive.”

“There’s a couple more that have yet to make their final decision, so we’re pushing 30,” said Decatur Principal Tom Sites.

“We’re having a year like no other in terms of sports. We have a talented group of kids here and the coaching staff does a great job of getting our kids seen,” he added.

The student-athletes will compete in an assortment of sports at the collegiate level.

“Just about all of the sports [offered at Decatur] were represented during the ceremony,” Sites said. “The kids learn so much from athletics, from sports in high school [and] teamwork for a common goal. Success in the classroom and athletics prepares them for the future.”

“Hopefully, the younger kids see their friends and teammates going off to play at the next level and it motivates then a little bit,” Dobronz added.
