More college signings

Several more Grand Strand athletes have finalized plans to sign with various colleges.

Aynor softball player Shelby Culler will sign this afternoon with NCAA Division-II Mars Hill in North Carolina. As a junior last year, Culler was 13-8 on the mound and led the Blue Jackets to the Class AA Lower State softball tournament. She also batted .353 on the season with four home runs and 18 RBI. She was named to the all-region team for the fourth consecutive season.

On Monday, several other area signing ceremonies are slated to take place.

Socastee will have a pair of athletes ink their National Letter of Intent.

Kirsten English will sign to continue her lacrosse career at NCAA Division-II Lees McRae at 3:30 in the school's media center. She'll be joined by gymnastics standout Gilly Hogue.

While gymnastics isn't supported by the South Carolina High School League, Hogue has been competing out the Gymnastics and More facility in North Myrtle Beach. She was a Junior Olympics national qualifier as a junior.

Carolina Forest senior softball player Angelina Santoro will sign with NCAA Division-II Coker College at 2:30 Monday in her school's media center. Santoro is part of a fluid senior class that is again expected to compete for a state softball title.

These athletes will join Wednesday's signees: Conway baseball players G.K. Young (Coastal Carolina) and Jordan Gore (South Carolina); Carolina Forest softball standout Marisa Runyon (Alabama); Myrtle Beach basketball player Tanisha Brown (UNC-Charlotte) and Seahawk golfer Cameron Crutchfield (Coker College).

The early signing period closes on Wednesday. Any athletes who do not sign by then will have to wait until April 17 to officially declare their intentions.
