FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) -It’s time for another National Letter of Intent signing as another student athlete from North Pole has made the decision to continue their academic and athletic career into college. Emily Bellant is signing to the Southern Oregon University Raiders National Champion wrestling team.

The Raiders compete in the Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC). The team went undefeated in the regular season on their route to a national title. The title run also included supporting the C.C.C.’s women’s wrestler of the year.

We spoke with Bellant on her thoughts about signing to such a strong program.

“Everything that I find out about Southern Oregon and the wrestling team is just absolutely amazing and it’s going to be really tough and I’m really excited to have so many, just the number of women in the wrestling program has grown so substantially”

Bellant has decided to study in Southern Oregon’s theatre program for vocal performance or theatre while she is also looking into the stem part of the program for theatre, and technical design.
