Eight Cavaliers Sign

By Jamie McBee/The Spartanburg Sports Report

On Wednesday afternoon the Dorman Cavaliers had eight students sign to continue their athletic careers next season at the collegiate level. The track and field team led the way as they had three athletes sign beginning with Kate Hamilton who signed with Clemson University. Hamilton just this past Saturday became the fourth fastest female runner in Dorman history as she recorded a 5:23 mile. When asked about her decision to attend Clemson Hamilton said, “I want to go into the medical field and Clemson has an awesome nursing program but what really sold me was when I went to meet the coaches and the team at Clemson and they just really welcomed me into their family.” Two members of the boys track and field team also signed on Wednesday as Phillip Quillen signed with Anderson University and Eli Buckley signed with North Greenville University. Buckley, who is also a North-South selection in football, said about choosing North Greenville, “It’s a place that I can get a good education and get the opportunity to compete with and against the best of the best.” Quillen said about his choosing to attend Anderson University, “I really like the school and it’s somewhere that when I visited I just saw myself being at for the next four years.”

The baseball team also had two players sign on Wednesday as Douglas Angeli signed with UNC-Wilmington and Christopher Dickerson signed with Limestone College. Angeli said about his decision to commit to UNC-Wilmington “I just felt like athletically and academically it was the perfect place for me.” Dickerson said that for him the draw to Limestone was immediate, “From the first time I stepped on the campus at Limestone and went to watch a game I just knew that is where I wanted to be.” The Dorman lacrosse teams, who both won region championships this season, had a player commit from both the boys and girls team. The boys team saw Jack O’Connor commit to play at Belmont Abbey College and Taylor Burgess from the girls team committed to Mars Hill University.

The final player to commit on Wednesday was Jazmyne Nelson of the Dorman girls basketball team as she committed to play at Converse College where she will be joining Cavaliers teammate Jasmine Webb to play for the Valkyries next season. Nelson helped lead the Cavaliers to a region championship and a berth in the Upperstate championship game this past season. When asked about her commitment to Converse Nelson said, “It has a great academic program and the coaches and players there just really made me feel at home.”
