While Colorado has long been a favorite destination spot for tourists, it has seemingly become a favorite spot for Los Alamos High School standout athletes to participate in intercollegiate sports.
In a ceremony Thursday afternoon at LAHS’ media center, three Hilltopper standout athletes were on hand to celebrate their signing of National Letters of Intent to continue their athletic careers in Colorado.
Shaina Riciputi signed to play women’s soccer at Colorado Springs’ Colorado College, Emi Weeks inked to compete in track and field for the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs and Sammi Kao signed to swim for Adams State College in Alamosa.
With their three commitments, the number of Hilltopper athletes that will compete in college-level athletics in Colorado next season was raised to six — Kelsey Neal, Holly Walker and Alex Nichols of LAHS will also take part in Colorado intercollegiate athletics.
Riciputi, Weeks and Nichols will also just be across town from each other, with all of them playing in the Colorado Springs area.
According to the band Chicago, “everybody needs a little time away from each other.” Such was the case of Sammi Kao and competitive swimming.
