Jack Bickerton and Mason Kim played baseball for CCHS throughout high school and have respectively signed to play at Whitman College and Illinois Institute of Technology.

Sophia Muller is going to spend her next years playing volleyball for California Lutheran University, while Brandon Horn-Bostel is committed to the University of Charleston.

Many of the athletes gave speeches thanking their parents for the time they invested in their athletic careers, and coaches for teaching them throughout their lives.
