More college signings
Harlem seniors Jamie Nevin and Tyrell Dyson, along with Aquinas senior Devin Newman, were added to the growing list of Columbia County athletes who have signed letters of intent to play at colleges.
Nevin, one of the top Lady Bulldog soccer players, will join Lakeside's Amanda Wade at Georgia College and State University next year, while Dyson signed with Erskine College. Newman, a resident of Evans and captain of the Aquinas girl's soccer team, signed with the University of Alabama-Huntsville.
Harlem senior Elissa Botts, the Lady Bulldogs' leading scorer against Hephzibah last week, did not sign a letter of intent but has made a verbal commitment to Georgia Southern University.
