Each fall, Hopkins High School student-athletes make an important decision on what their plans will be after graduation. This year, eight Royals participated in the fall National Signing Day event on Wednesday, Nov. 8, committing to academics and athletics at colleges near and far.
For seven seniors, their journeys will continue in the Midwest. And for one it will take her out East to New York. Parents, family, and friends celebrated with students as they signed ceremonial commitment letters at the Lindbergh Center.
