Meiko Johnson, Managing Editor

Seniors of Puyallup High School’s spring sports season have recently participated in national early signing day to the college that they will be attending in the fall.


Levi Kiuchi- Attending University of Washington for baseball

“I knew it would be a good fit for my because of the atmosphere and it would be a brotherhood; they have great education and are a hard-working team,” Kiuchi said


Conner Ellingson- Tacoma Community College for baseball

“I like all the coaches and the way they built the program and the competitive atmosphere the players bring to the workouts, practices and games. I know a lot of PHS  baseball alumni that went toTCC and they said they loved it,” Ellingson said.


Olivia Ellingson- Louisiana Tech University for softball

“Louisiana Tech has a very friendly campus; I felt it right away. The chemistry and success of the program really impressed me and I was drawn to this tight knit community in Ruston. It honestly felt like my home away from home,” Ellingson said.


Brianna Munger- Chandler-Gilbert Community College

“I’ve been working out with Karin Gadberry who was an assistant coach at GCU. This year she started a brand new softball program at the brand new campus at Park University in Gilbert Arizona. I had my mind set on going to Park because I couldn’t imagine another coach being just like her but she told me that she worked with Bry Norris at GCU that is now the head coach at CGCC,” Munger said.” “I would be able to finish out my AA there as well as play softball my freshman year since she was still looking for a 2020 pitcher to fill her roster.” 


Evan Scavatto- University of Portland for baseball

“I chose UP because it has a great baseball program, nation-leading academics and out of all the schools I visited made me feel most at home. I was also relatively close to my family back home,” Scavatto said.


Jamar Dittus- Olympic Community College for baseball

“I believe OCC will be the best spot for me. I’ve worked out with the team a couple times, know the campus. Hopefully I will have a good two years at Olympic to move onto a four-year school,” Dittus said.


Kyler Johnson- Tacoma Community College baseball

“They showed the most interest in me as a student and baseball player and have the best junior college baseball program around to get me to my desired goals,” Johnson said.
