Three Delta Huskies sign letters of intent to compete on the next level
On May 7, the Delta Junction Huskies community had three of their own sign their letter of intents to compete on the next level. Kaylee Reierson, Drennan Magee and Jason Montes all signed on the platform of Zoom.
Reierson is joining the Webber International Warriors down in Florida. The Warriors play on the NAIA level, and they went 7-19 last year. Reierson is coming off four years playing for the Huskies, and now travels across the U.S.
"It's a dream come true. In sixth grade when I started I made it a goal to become a varsity volleyball player in high school," said Reierson. "In my freshman year when I achieved that I decided that I loved the sport so much that I wanted to play in college. So it's just become a complete dream come true. I lived in Alaska all my life so I wanted to get away from the snow a little bit hence why I'm going all the way down to Florida to get as far away as I can and find a beach there."
The second Huskie to sign was Magee. Magee was flanked by his parents as he signed his NLI to Crown College to play for the Storm. The Storm are on the Division III level, and they went 10-15 last year. Magee is coming off a year where he was named to all-conference honors in the Aurora, and helped Delta to the number two seed in the conference tournament.
"So it's a really big deal for me to at least get the opportunity and having the ability to accept it. It's just a huge blessing." said Magee.
The last of the three Delta players to sign was Jason Montes. Montes signed his NLI to the Linfield Wildcats who are on the D-III level. The Wildcats were very successful last season, going 20-6. Montes was one of the main reasons the Huskies had a successful season, leading the team as their point guard. Montes was also named to the first team 3-A all-state.
"I'm just ready. I'm hungry you know. I chose Linfield because of their culture. They have a really good culture," said Montes. "I visited the campus in November. I seen a coach before I visited, Coach Willis. I don't know if he is around, but he was always 100 for me. He really liked my game and he really wanted me to go there. So when I visited I truly fell in love with the campus you know."
This crop joins Hailey Williams, who signed with Duke University, as one of the richest recruiting classes for Delta.
