It was all smiles at Skyline High School on April 18, National NCAA Signing Day, when Maddie Christ, Jackie Wilson and Megan Wiedeman signed their contracts to become college athletes.

“As a school, we wish you the best moving forward,” Skyline’s Athletic Director Ryan Gilbert said.

So far, 16 Skyline students have signed to play college sports.

“It felt good,” Wilson said. “It felt like a new start.”

Wilson signed to row for the University of Washington’s crew team.

“I’m so excited,” said Wiedeman, who will play basketball next year at Saint Martin’s University. “I’ve been waiting for this day since the beginning of the year … I’ve been waiting to play college basketball forever.”

Wiedeman holds several high school records, including 617 career rebounds and 27 single-game rebounds, which she earned this year against Garfield.

“Not very often does a coach get to speak so highly of a player their freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior year,” soccer coach Don Braman said about Christ.

Next year, she will play for the University of New Hampshire’s womens soccer team.
