Seniors sign to colleges
By Payton Ross, Trojan Tempo Sports Editor
TROY- Four Trojan senior athletes signed national letters of intent in the month of November. Camryn Moeller, Jake Daniel, Nate Uhlenbrock, and Brandon Emery will all be going to compete at NCAA colleges.
Camryn Moeller will be taking her volleyball skills to the University of Toledo, a Division I school that is in the Mid American Conference.
“I visited the university in February,” stated Moeller. “They had some really nice players and also really nice coaches. That obviously drew me in right away. Here in Troy, volleyball is my home away from home and I wanted to get that feeling as I go onto college. Toledo gave me that feeling instantly.”
Nate Uhlenbrock had a tremendous senior golf season averaging a score of 38.24 per nine holes and will golf for Miami Hamilton.
“Miami is my dream school, it always has been. Attending Miami runs in my family. They have great athletics and a really nice campus,” said Uhlenbrock. “There is just so many fun things to do on campus and then you obviously have the golf aspect of it all. Playing golf every weekend, traveling to different states, going across the country. That should be really fun as well.”
Jake Daniel will be continuing his baseball career at Ohio Dominican University.
“The size and location of the school are perfect for me,” said the Trojan first baseman. “Ohio Dominican has wonderful sports management and a great education program. The facilities and coaches are great as well.”
During the 2017 season, Daniel had a total of 193 total put outs. “Troy has helped me so much,” expressed Daniel. “Coaching wise, Coach Welker has played a huge part in this and has helped me make this happen. I have learned a lot from him the past three years, not just about baseball, but overall just being a good person. The teachers have also been fantastic in helping me with my academics and pushing me to be the best student I can be.”
Brandon Emery will be continuing his baseball career at the University of Findlay.
“The coaches made me feel like family, the campus was beautiful and I just really like the feel of a small school.”
During the 2017 spring season, Emery had 19 runs and 14 RBIs. “Coach Welker and Coach Wells have done a lot for me and my teammates to prepare us for the season and for college. We always put in extra work to get better each and everyday. They’ve always pushed me to be the best player I could possibly be and without them, I wouldn’t have achieved my dream.”
Congratulations and best wishes to these athletes as they watch their dreams come true!
