Three seniors sign letters of intent

Parker VanNess signs with Marian College while his mom Jennifer, dad Ben VanNess and Marian Golf Coach Stephen Ford look on.

Brown County High School class of 2019 will have three athletes playing a sport in college, two golfers, and a track and field athlete. These athletes have accumulated many outstanding accomplishments in their high school careers and it helped land them opportunities to play in college.

Jackson McPheeters, four-year track and field standout for Brown County still remains undecided. McPheeters went on several visits to Universities gave insight on what he was looking for in a school, “ Academics come first.” Which for all athletes in college academics should be the number one priority. “ I also took into account the quality of the team, how they compete, and how the team atmosphere is, and finally the financial aid and scholarships provided.” McPheeters has cut his list down and is looking to make his decision in the near future.

Ashley Masteller, four-year girls golf standout will be attending Indiana University East this upcoming fall. “ I really liked the campus, the professors, the coaches, and the atmosphere. It’s not a big school but still feels like college. I also wanted to have some distance from home yet not too terribly far away.”

Parker VanNess, four-year boys golf standout will be attending Marian University this upcoming fall. “The campus was beautiful and it just felt like the right fit for me as a student, on the golf side, the coach gave me a near full-ride, and I get to travel around the country playing on one of the top-ranked programs in the country.”

Brown County High School is very excited for the opportunities some of its student-athletes are receiving and look forward to their future success.
