Jeffco student-athletes ink on first National Letter of Intent Signing Day

It didn't looked like a normal National Letter of Intent Signing Day on Wednesday.

The current COVID-19 pandemic didn't allow for the normal signing celebrations across Jeffco during the first of four signing days coming up for the Class of 2021. However, a number of Jeffco Public Schools student-athletes signed on Nov. 11 to continue their college careers.

Ralston Valley had nine girls sign, highlighted by last year's Class 5A girls diving state champion Isabel Gregersen. She will dive for Florida State University. Sydney Bevington is taking her basketball talent to Santa Clara University and Jordan West is staying close to home to play softball at Colorado State University.

Columbine's Korbe Otis, who helped the Rebels to their first state softball title in 2019, officially signed with the University of Louisville.

The University of Colorado added Conifer's Zack Gacnik to its roster. Gacnik placed third at the 4A boys cross country state championship last month in Colorado Springs.

The next National Letter of Intent Signing Day is Dec. 16 and includes the early football signing period.
