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.
“I’m super excited to be a Senator and start this new journey with acrobatics & tumbling,” she said.
Phillips has a been a standout in the pool throughout her career for the Lady Tigers, and will now move on and remain a competitor in the school’s home venue at the George E. Myles Pool on the D&E campus.
Phillips has been a multi-state meet qualifier during her career and also an All-Big 10 Conference performer.
“I’m so excited to officially become a Senator and to continue my swim career at a place that I love,” Phillips said.
Meanwhile, Gracie Emery will continue her soccer career at the University of Charleston.
Emery was a four-year letterman in soccer at Elkins High School.
She was listed as honorable mention on the Class AA-A all-state squad recently released.
“I’d like to thank my parents for the years of dedication they spent supporting my love for soccer, my brother for pushing me to play my freshman year and my coaches for challenging me during every practice and game to better me as both a player and a person,” Emery said. “Four years ago at my first soccer practice I never would have dreamed I would be playing in college.
“I’m beyond excited to further my soccer career at the University of Charleston. Wings Up!”
