The school is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that didn’t prevent Dos Pueblos from holding its annual college-signing ceremony for student athletes.
Normally done in Sovine Gym before parents and members of the student body, Dos Pueblos introduced its 20 college-bound student athletes from the Class of 2020 in a virtual format and compiled the personal clips for a YouTube video.
“We want to take this time to celebrate and recognize the high school athletic accomplishments of these 20 student athletes and their commitment to continue their sport at the college level,” said Dos Pueblos Athletic Director Dan Feldhaus in the video. “We recognize and acknowledge the time, the dedication, the early-morning workouts, the time in the weight room, the long weekend tournaments and trips out of town and everything it took to get each one of them to this point today.
“This dedication extends beyond the pool, field or court, these students met the academic requirements to reach their goal.”
Feldhaus paid tribute to the parents, acknowledging the huge part they played in their children’s success.
“All these students recognize and understand they would not have reached their goal if it weren’t for the support and dedication of their parents,” he said.
