College Signing Ceremony For Grauer Senior Athletes

College Signing Ceremony For Grauer Senior Athletes

Two of The Grauer School's Senior athletes were recognized by Grauer Athletic Director Trevor Olson at the school assembly on March 7, during an informal Signing Ceremony, celebrating their intent to attend college and participate in their sport of choice.

Congratulations to Makela R. '23 for signing to attend Oberlin College, an NCAA Division III institution, and committing to participate in Women's Volleyball during the 2023-2024 academic year. Trevor spoke about the arc of Makela's athletic career at Grauer and Horizon Prep. Makela first found her love for sports when she started as an archer on the Grauer Middle School Archery team. After she tried volleyball, however, that quickly became her favorite sport, which she played at Horizon Prep during all 4 years of High School. Makela said, "I want to thank my family, friends, mentors, and all of my coaches who have pushed me to be the best volleyball player and person I can be. This sport has given me so much and I am so grateful for the opportunity to play at the next level. I can't wait to be an Obie next fall!" Makela's proud parents, Joe and Molly Reid, posed with her at the ceremony.

Congratulations to Devon O. '23 for being recruited by Tufts University to pursue his passion for sailing on the Tufts Varsity Sailing Team. Trevor shared a summary of Devon's sailing career: "For Devon, it all began at age 7 when his parents enrolled him in the Junior sailing program at the San Diego Yacht Club. As he progressed, he started racing his 8-foot sabot sailboat in the local junior fleet, and soon became addicted to the sport. Devon proved to be a natural, winning a podium position in his first Sabot Nationals at age 12. Devon then started racing the Laser, an Olympic class single-handled sailboat. After much success, he has since graduated to training with US Sailing coaches alongside other Olympic hopefuls in the US Olympic Development Program for men. You just might see Devon representing the United States at the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, carrying with him, as always, his Grauer spirit." Devon's proud parents, Scott Owen and Cathy Santone, posed with him at the ceremony.
