Six Clovis High athletes participated in National Signing Day on Wednesday November 8 officially committing to colleges across the United States.

These stellar athletes include: Danielle Lung, Fresno State softball; Jordyn Martinez, Sonoma State softball; Ashley Kincaid, Azusa Pacific softball; Tori Mueller, University of Massachusetts Lowell softball; McKenna Lewis, UC San Diego track and cross country; and Seth Nevills, Penn State wrestling.

Lewis said choosing UCSD was easy for her.

”It has a good computer science program,” Lewis said. ”I just knew I fit.”

Other factors that influenced her decision included always wanting to go to a UC and the areas good weather.

Lewis’s coach Sean McManus believes her choice of school is a great fit.

”It’s a perfect fit, she wants to be an engineer so it’s a great athletic and academic balance,” McManus said.

For Lewis’ preparation for the next level McManus said, “She’s pretty easy to work with. I coached college so I’m trying to give her the tools for this transition.”

Lewis says that Clovis High has prepared her with strong coaching and a good team environment.

Much in the same way Lewis chose her school based on the caliber of the program, so did Mueller.

”It’s softball program is Division I and the vibe of the East Coast,” Mueller said in regards to her decision.

Mueller had visited other schools in Southern California but described them as being “too comfortable.”

Mueller’s coach Mike Noel has described her as, “Coming with a lot of athleticism and competitiveness which will help with her transition to the next level.”

I’m always impressed when an athlete chooses to leave; it shows character and toughness,” Noel said in regards to Mueller’s choice.

Noel believe that Mueller is a special player and describes her as being “rare,” saying “she eliminates off days.”

Nevills will be following in the footsteps of his older brother Nick at Penn State.

“It’s the best fit for me and the kind of wrestling partners they have fit my style,” Nevills said.

Wrestling coach Gabriel Schaefer described Penn State as,”one of the best wrestling schools and almost set a scoring record with players injured.”

Schaefer believes that Nevills is well prepared to compete on one of the top collegiate wrestling teams in the country.

“He moves like a lightweight but is definitely an upper weight so there’s a lot of effort,” Schaefer said.   

Nevills accredits his preparation to the strength of Clovis High’s wrestling program.

“Clovis High’s wrestling program is one of the best wrestling programs in the nation, so for being in the room for four years has really matured me and helped me grow,” Nevills said.
