Three St. Anne's Belfield Seniors Sign National Letters of Intent
Brianna Tinsley signs with UVa for basketball. Joe Robertson signs with Duke for lacrosse. Jayla Davis signs with Sacred Heart for basketball.
Three St. Anne's Belfield student-athletes have made plans to play in college. Brianna Tinsley, Joe Robertson and Jayla Davis all signed national letters of intent on Monday.
Robertson signed with Duke lacrosse. Robertson had a team-high 52 goals and 31 assists last year and will likely leave STAB as the school's all-time leading scorer. Now he's getting ready to play in the ACC at Duke.
Robertson says, "They didn't say when I'll play. They said nothing is given to you. I just got to go down there and work as hard as I can and just create the most opportunities as I can for myself, but I'm definitely looking to go down there and win a national championship".
Tinsley has signed with the UVa women's basketball program. Tinsley is a point guard who's a two-time All-State standout. Tinsley's family is excited she's staying close to home.
Tinsley says about the UVa coaches, "They said I'll have a chance at starting and being the next point guard, but it's up to me". Reporter: How does that make you feel? "Excited, like I want to get to work now".
Davis has signed with Sacred Heart in Connecticut for basketball. Davis, who has also been a track star at STAB says Sacred Heart's style of play fit her well.
Davis says, "Their tempo is like STAB's tempo so it will be a good fit for me. I can just jump in and do what I do. Yeah it's fast, it's always fast".
