Martinez, Ga--A few more area signings taking place this afternoon. At Lakeside, a trio of Panthers are off to college in the fall.

Soccer goalie Brendan Gribek, Katelyn Smith will also play soccer while lacrosse player Cannon Cooper have all decided to stick close to home and play in the Peach Belt Conference. Gribek will become a USC Aiken Pacer, Smith, Georgia College and Cooper is becoming a Lander Bearcat as the school is adding the program starting next spring. It's a big day for all

"I mean it's pretty incredible. I mean, I don't want to jinx myself but possibly being one of the first goalies to ever pay at Lander is pretty incredible" said Cannon Cooper

"When I went to ID camp I really liked the environment that the team created and really felt like a family environment and that's what I was looking for" said Katelyn Smith

"I'm really familiar with the coaching staff. The team has a lot of familiar players from the area that are signing with me so its always nice to sign with your brothers, it's one of my dreams" said Brendan Gribek

Also signing today, Greenbrier's Ashley Valentino inked to play soccer at berry and Harlem's Cory Brady signed to play football at Erskine
