I thought these kids where from Wayne? How did our high schools do.... or should'nt I ask.

Hey KrisTee -- Some are from Wayne, but we included all of the DePaul students in this post. Wayne public schools delayed their signing day ceremonies to this upcoming week due to midterms and snow days.

Jessica, thank you for posting a nice article about ALL of the future collegiate athletes currently seniors at DePaul Catholic HS located in Wayne. The signing ceremony on Thursday, delayed a day due to snow, gave each athlete in attendance an equal opportunity to shine. I was able to send the link to this article to family & friends who could not attend. Thanks again!
