Local athletes sign on the dotted line.
Whenever a high school athlete suits up for his or her first competition, there's always a dream that their skills along with coaching and hard work would lead to a scholarship.
And an opportunity to play the sport they love on the college level.
Wednesday that dream became a reality for several local athletes on NCAA signing day.
Here's the list of signees:
John Martin Best, Parkersburg High: Air Force Academy (Wrestling)
Patrick Copen, Parkersburg Catholic: Marshall (Baseball)
Marie Discini, Parkersburg Catholic: St. Francis (Tennis
