Thirteen student-athletes from Will C. Wood High will be moving on to play their respective sports in college. In a couple of cases, they will be sticking together by attending the same school.
The athletes were honored in a ceremony in the Will C. Wood gym on Tuesday afternoon, with family and friends in attendance.
Athletic director and head baseball coach Nick Voight gave the opening address, noting that only seven percent of high school athletes go on to play in college, and only two percent latch on with a Division I school. He said that going to a Division I college is not the be-all and end-all, stating, “There are great experiences out there no matter what path they take that are going to help them grow.”
