The Seahawks athletic director, Phil Tisa, talked about this varied group of signings.
“To me it shows the success of our entire athletic department. We actually had another girl who had an offer, but then got a late offer as well to a different school. So she was going to sign for cheer, so it would have actually been seven signees with six sports represented. It shows overall success of the quality of kids we’re putting out.”
These six make 8 the total of South Walton signees so far this school year and coach Tisa expects more signings before the school year ends.
