Eleven Edmonds-Woodway student athletes who will be competing at the collegiate level signed their national letters of intent during a ceremony at the high school Friday afternoon. Teammates, family members and coaches were in attendance to watch as the athletes committed to continuing their athletic careers in college. Two more athletes were unable to attend the ceremony, so the total number of E-W athletes intending to play intercollegiate sports stands at 13.

“Hopefully, you understand how cool that is to go play at the next level because not everybody gets the chance to do that, takes a lot of dedication, a lot of hard work,” said Edmonds-Woodway Athletic Director Tyler Geving.
