The first of two spring signing days was held April 21 and seven McCallie student-athletes signed or committed to continue their academics and athletics at the colleges or universities of their choice in an on-campus ceremony. This event was the first of two spring ceremonies. On this day, baseball, lacrosse, soccer and swimming and diving participated. A second signing ceremony will be April 28.

 

Nic Mirabella will continue his baseball career at Maryville College.

Christian Chilton is headed to Anderson University to play lacrosse, and teammate Quinn Fitzsimmons will enroll at Colgate University in the fall.

 

All-State soccer players Neal Carlson and Gui Vivaldinia will both be playing Division I soccer next year. Neal has signed with Southern Methodist University, and Gui will matriculate to the University of North Carolina.

Two swimmers, who will swim in the State Meet this weekend, are also set to compete in college. All-American Kyle Berry will swim and play baseball at Emory & Henry College, and Colby Maupin has signed with the University of Kentucky.

Overall, 20 student-athletes from McCallie's Class of 2021 will continue to play their respective sports at the collegiate level. Since 2017, 127 McCallie graduates have gone on to compete at the next level
