ELKINS — Four Elkins High School student-athletes signed letter-of-intents this week to compete at the college level.

Addison Berdine (cross country-track and field), Gabi Satterfield (acrobatics & tumbling) and Hannah Phillips (swimming) will all take their talents to Davis & Elkins College.

Berdine placed 13th in this past fall’s state cross country meet, helping lead the Lady Tigers to a seventh-place finish. She was a three-time state qualifier and also a state qualifier in track and field.

“I’m so happy to become a Senator and I am excited to start running cross country and track at Davis & Elkins College,” Berdine said.

Satterfield, who was a member of the EHS cheerleading squad, is looking forward to join the D&E program.
