COLLEGE BOUND: Nevada Union student athletes make college commitments
May 19, 2017
Nevada Union held a college commitment ceremony earlier this week, celebrating seven student athletes who will continue to compete in their chosen sport while getting a higher education.
Participating in the commitment ceremony were Alexandra Cook, Esme Quintana, Lucas Kerley, Josh Larsen, Logan Siemers, Jack Devlin and Andrew Pardini.
Cook, a standout setter on the NU girls volleyball team, will be playing at and attending Sierra College. In Cook's senior season she helped the Lady Miners reach the playoffs and led the team in assists.
Quintana was the floor general for NU's girls basketball team. In her senior season, she was a team captain, led the team in assists and helped the Lady Miners to a playoff berth. Quintana is set to play at and attend Yuba College.
Kerley, a powerful outside hitter on the boys volleyball team, will be heading to Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee. Kerley was instrumental in the Miners grabbing a share of the 2017 Sierra Foothill League title and going deep into the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.
Larson, Siemers and Devlin were all members of Nevada Union's boys soccer team and will represent the Miners at the college stage. Devlin will attend and play at Yale University, Siemers is headed to Dominican University and Larson will attend and play at Lake Tahoe Community College.
Pardini, who was a member of the swim and water polo teams at Nevada Union, will attend and swim at Southwestern University in Austin, Texas. Pardini recently concluded his high school swim career by making it to the Sac-Joaquin Section finals in both the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle events.
