National Signing Day in Lake Highlands

Coach Perez looks on while Alex Roquemore signs to play volleyball at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta

Four athletes from Lake Highlands High School signed letters of intent to play sports at universities around the country this morning. Athletic Director Lonnie Jordan praised their dedication and thanked them for being an inspiration to their teammates and classmates.

“Today is a great opportunity to celebrate,” said Jordan. “These students have worked very hard to achieve their dreams, and they are becoming a reality now. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stand behind you as you go and do great things and say, ‘this is one of ours.’”

Charles Wilson will play football at Austin College, Alex Roquemore will play volleyball at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, Cosy Carroll will play soccer at St. Edward’s University in Austin and Adis Salihovic will play soccer at Defiance College in Ohio.

The student-athletes were backed by family, teachers, teammates and friends, and Roquemore, who also dances on the drill team, was accompanied by a large contingent of cheering Highlandettes.

“We can’t say enough about what these kids have done and the sacrifices they have made,” added Jordan. “We love this day.”
