The Rivers School of Weston has announced that three seniors will sign their national letters of Intent Wednesday morning, the first day of the NCAA’s early signing period for the 2013-14 college athletic seasons.
Senior Emilee Daley (Sharon) will commit to playing basketball for Boston Collegel. A two-time ISL and New England all-star, the 6-foot-1-inch guard has averaged a team-high 12 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals, and 2 blocks per game during her two-year varsity career. She has helped guide the Red Wings to a 45-5 overall record and two Class B championships.
Fellow senior Jake Willsey (Chestnut Hill) will commit to play baseball for Tulane in the spring of 2014. The 5-11 shortstop played an essential role in helping guide the Red Wings to a 10-7 season in 2012 following a 3-13-1 season in 2011. Willsey was an invitee to the Perfect Game USA 2011 National Underclassmen Showcase Main Event, held from Dec. 28-30 in Fort Myers, Fla.
Senior Nick DeSisto (Canton) will join the lacrosse team at Loyola University in Maryland, where the Greyhounds are the defending Division 1 national champions. The midfielder was named to the elite All-Tournament Team in the Under Armour All-American Tournament this past summer, a recognition awarded to only 10 of the 250 players invited to the tournament.
