21 athletes and their families celebrated during a signing ceremony on Tuesday, June 7 at Colonie Central High School.

South Colonie Central School District recognized athletes at its annual signing day event  Students and families gathered to help celebrate 21 senior athletes representing 18 different colleges as they signed their National Letter of Intent or commitment letter to play sports at the collegiate level. 

“We are proud to highlight the following Colonie athletes as they head off to play intercollegiate athletics,” said William Roemer, South Colonie athletic director. “ Athletics is a big part of their lives and it is great to want to see them continue their careers in college. It’s great to celebrate all the hard work they have put into their sport at our district and I wish our athletes nothing but the best for their next phase of their academic and athletic endeavors.” 

Colonie athletes were decked out in their college gear.  Each student-athlete was allowed to take the mic for a few brief words. Most thanked their families for all the years of support and encouragement.
