The sheer number of students participating in San Clemente High School’s National Letter of Intent signing day ceremony on Feb. 3 was impressive.
Just about every one of the school’s athletic programs was represented by 24 student-athletes, who lined up side-by-side outside in the school’s center pavilion to be recognized by their peers and families.
Although only student-athletes for football, boys soccer, girls soccer and girls water polo could sign their National Letter of Intent today, the school honored other athletes who had signed in the fall.
