The school's Thursday afternoon signing ceremony featured the Panthers' first softball signee in a decade in Gretchen Warner (Elgin Community College), its first-ever female wrestler in Cheyanna Bork (McKendree), its first-ever female rugby signee in Seven Sassano (Dartmouth) and its first-ever pair of Harvard-bound twins, track stars Tina and Katina Martin.
