College commitments

Firestone High School cross country and track and field coach Tim Carroll announced that four 2017 graduates have pledged to run in college.

They are Sam Michael (cross country and track at Kent State University), Sophie Niekamp (cross country and track at Kenyon College), Kay-El Floyd (track at Bethune-Cookman University) and Ciara Gisstand (track at Ursuline College).

“Kay-El is a four-year letter winner who helped us win four straight City Series titles for the first time in school history, and Sam contributed too as a sophomore, junior and senior on the championship teams,” Carroll said. “Sam went to the Division I regional meet in cross country and track as a senior, and Kay-El went to regionals twice in track. Sophie won three events in the City Series championship this past season, and Ciara is the first athlete in school history to qualify for regionals all four years in track and field.

“With these four student-athletes, Firestone now has 10 graduates running in college. The other six are Noah LaVictoire at Walsh University, Darcy Isaiah at Ohio Wesleyan, Janelle Perry at Ursuline, Dara Perry and Kamar Majid at the University of Akron and Harley Moyer at Washington & Jefferson College in Pennsylvania.”
