Four Announce College Plans

Over the past few days, several LebCo high schoolers have announced commitments to continue their playing careers at the collegiate level.

On Sunday, Palmyra’s Caleb Sitler announced that he committed to playing soccer for Bloomsburg University after graduating in June. A day earlier, his female counterpart, Delaney Miller, only a junior, announced that she had committed to play at Kutztown. Both schools are members of the PSAC and compete in NCAA Division II.

Palmyra wasn’t the only school to see its athletes announce their commitments to play at the next level, as Cedar Crest also had two. Senior Christian Weaber made known his decision to continue his Football career at Widener University. On the Baseball front, Dylan Fegley made his decision known that he intends to go the JuCo route by playing for Fayetteville Technical Community College, located in Fayetteville, NC. Fegley was a key pitcher last season for Northern Lebanon, but an off-season move will have him playing his final year of high school ball for the blue and grey before heading off to college.
