Clarksburg's Noella Anyangwe has committed to compete for the University of Maryland next year. Anyangwe ranked second in the 100m hurdles and 3rd in the 300m hurdles in Montgomery County this year.


Famous for four years as "the girl with the American flag bandana," Wootton's Casey Dowling let her hair down to sign with the University of New Mexico. Despite off-and-on injuries in high school, Dowling has been one of the best jumpers/sprinters in MoCo history with a personal best long jump of 18-03.50 and a 200-meter dash time of 25.51.


Wootton's Madeline Rico has signed to compete for Mount St. Mary's University. Rico has a 3200-meter PR of 11:41.75 and finished 9th in this year's XC state championship.


Josh Ellis of Walter Johnson HS has signed to compete for Appalachian State University. Ellis won the Virginia Tech Invite mile in a personal best 4:20 this winter and has also won an 800-meter county title. App State is a division I school in Boone, North Carolina where former Walter Johnson runners Chris Moen and Brian Graves have had successful college careers.


Wootton's Grace Corbett has committed to compete for Vanderbilt University in track and field. Corbett has personal best times of 2:16.72, 5:04.60, and helped Wootton break the 4x800 relay state record in 2010.


February 1 was NLI Signing Day. Elad Covaliu of Walter Johnson is busy on the wrestling mat this winter with a 31-0 record and #1 state ranking, but we expect to see him this outdoor season as the top county returner in the 300-meter hurdles with a personal best time of 40.08. Elad signed to Holy Cross to play football but plans to also compete in track.


Rachel Watkins will graduate from Tuscarora High School but only after cementing her place on the Montgomery County all-time leaderboards as a member of the Magruder track team. Watkins clocked personal best times of 7.24, 12.24, 25.01 and helped Magruder break county meet records in the 4x100 and 4x200 relays. She will compete for James Madison University.


India Knight of Northwest HS has signed to compete for Drake University in Des Moines Iowa.
