High schools celebrate 31 student-athletes signing letters of intent

Denton Independent School District’s three comprehensive high schools each celebrated student-athletes moving on to the next competitive level recently, with 31 district students signing national letters of intent to compete collegiately.
Denton, Guyer and Ryan high schools each held ceremonies to honor their student-athletes on Wednesday, Feb. 3, when National Signing Day – the first day high school seniors can enter into written agreements to play collegiately – took place for several sports. While some sports had signing days on earlier dates, many still took part in collective school celebrations to honor their accomplishments.
