WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Four more athletes are heading to the college ranks, but today it was all about the girls.
Emily King, Taylor Long, Samantha Luscher and Averee Gerold of Ashley High School all celebrated their signing today in front of a packed crowd of friends, family and coaches.
Taylor and Samantha will play volleyball, one to Cape Fear and one to UNC-Asheville. Averee is playing lacrosse at Longwood University and Emily is off to Lees McRae for softball. This day is a special memory they all will never forget especially for Emily and Taylor.
“It was crazy,” Emily King said. “Not everyone can say that they sat next to their best friend and signed to play sports and stuff. It was awesome, I loved it.”
“It’s awesome,” Taylor Long said. “It’s so awesome that you can sign on the same day as your best friend. It’s amazing. It’s awesome that I’ve come this far.”
