One of the area's smallest schools had one of the area's largest college signing hauls today.
Five Bradshaw Christian athletes signed letters of intent to play at the next level.
Leading the way is three-sport standout Brady Dragmire, who will attend Nevada on a baseball scholarship. Dragmire also plays football and basketball for the Pride.
Others to sign full-ride letters, according to Bradshaw Christian Athletic Director Mike Ruble:
Lauren Beyer, women's basketball, UC Davis.
Lynn Tay, swimming, Wagner College in New York.
Macy Chase, softball, Felician College, a Division II school in Lodi, N.J.
Jordie Smith, women's basketball, Vanguard University, an NAIA school in Costa Mesa.
The school of 225 students plans a celebration rally for them on Friday.
"I think this is tremendous for any school let alone a small school who has been able to compete at a high level and has been very successful over the past several years and with such a young history," Ruble wrote in an e-mail announcing the signings. "We also have at least five more kids that will sign in the late period, one being our quarterback (senior Daniel Lewis) who is on the short list for Notre Dame, Arizona, UCLA, Air Force Academy, among a few others..."
