On Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Petco Park, The Breitbard Hall of Fame held a fall signing day event for high school athletes moving to college and two Otay students, Kassandra Solis and Randy Abshier, were there to sign their Letter of Intent to colleges they plan to go to in the near future.

Abshier will play baseball at the University of Arizona to play baseball while Solis will play softball at Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

National Signing Day is the first day when a high school student athlete, most commonly a senior, can sign a Letter of Intent to his or her future college, promising to play a sport in that college.

The event meant a lot to these athletes because after all their hard work, they get to continue playing in college and maybe goes up to the professional level.

“The event was super special because my family was there and it was something I have been working for a long time,” said Solis.

National Signing Day usually happens Feb. 7 but those athletes who already decided where they want to go could sign early, like Solis and Abshier did.

Abshier said that it feels pretty good to sign to the University of Arizona and he’s excited for his first year.

“It’s going to be a grind but it’s going to be very fun,” said Abshier about the chance to play in the professional level after college.

Abshier said that he’s been playing baseball “since he was born,” so it is even more special to be accepted into a university and continue improving the sport that he loves. He also said his family inspired him most to reach for this goal.

Solis also said it feels amazing to sign to her future college where she will play for the next four years and it’s such a relief that after so much hard work it finally paid off.

“I’m a little nervous since I’m going halfway across the country to play, but I’m also really excited since I’ve been reaching for this goal since I started playing softball when I was four,” said Solis.

She is grateful for her parents because they encouraged her so much and she couldn’t have reached this goal without them. After college, Solis wants to work harder and maybe have the chance to play for an Olympic softball team.

“I’m more than excited to live a new chapter of my life,” said Solis.
