Committed Uni Athletes!
This week, Uni Athletics is thrilled to recognize and celebrate five Trojans who signed national letters of intent on National Signing Day!
These student-athletes took time to reflect on their success and share their thoughts about next year. Please visit our Featured Trojans page to read their full responses.
- Stewart Campbell, water polo, UC Irvine
- Evan Chien, golf, UCLA
- Brian Lou, swimming, Princeton (signed in spring)
- Collette Lowengrub, cross country and track, UC Riverside
- Marta Meinardi, triathlon, University of Denver
- Mya Wang, lacrosse, UC Berkeley
November 11 was the first day that senior athletes in all sports other than football could officially sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play their sport at a college or university during the 2021-2022 school year.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the traditional fall in-person signing event has been postponed until the spring as a safety precaution. We sincerely hope to honor these athletes and recognize their achievements at that time.
Water polo, UC Irvine
I am most excited for the independence that comes with going to college but I am also happy that I will still be close to home and the beach. Also I am excited to be playing Division 1 water polo against the top competition in the country.–Campbell
I’m most looking forward to the student life and having memorable experiences with my golf team. I’m also looking forward to discovering more about myself and improving my golf game.–Chien
Cross country & track, UC Riverside
I’m so so excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and running career at UC Riverside!! Huge thanks to my family, friends, teammates, and coaches who have all helped me get to this point. Go highlanders!!— Lowengrub (via instagram announcement)
Triathlon, Univ. of Denver
I am really looking forward to a small but competitive team atmosphere. NCAA triathlon teams are usually limited to less than 15 athletes so it will be a tight-knit group of girls with a fantastic coach as well. The University of Denver also has great academic opportunities so I am excited to pursue a degree in Biological sciences as well.— Meinardi
I am looking forward to experiencing Berkeley’s top-notch facilities for both academics and athletics. Berkeley offers numerous resources for student-athletes to guide them towards success, such as Cameron Institute.–Wang
