Five Lynx football players signed National Letters of Intent Wednesday.
It's the most signings Brandon Valley has had from one program on national signing day in 26 years, according to Randy Marso, BVSD activities director.
"This is the biggest class we've had all signing national letters of intent all on the same day in the same sport," he said.
The group includes Chase Marso and Nate Winter, who have signed with Augustana College. Matthew VandeBerg has committed to play for Iowa Hawkeyes and Adam Guthmiller is going to Northern State University. Dylan Kasma signed with the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City. Derek Bose is headed to Dakota Weslyan and Tony Tripp signed with Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall.
"I'm obviously proud of this and it means a lot to me," said Lynx head coach Chad Garrow. "Every year, you hope your kids go on to be a student-athlete at the next level ... it's a great honor and I appreciate being part of it."
Senior soccer player Brynne Rist also signed her national letter of intent Wednesday. She will play soccer at the St. Cloud State University.
