Committing to playing sports at a school speaks volumes to the students’ athletic and academic accomplishments. Balancing a formidable workload with a strenuous sport is not easy feat. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication, but who is more up to the challenge than an IHA girl!

The athletes recognize all they have done to be able to sign to a school and are extremely grateful IHA hosts singing days to recognize their achievements.

“Signing Day is what really made everything feel official. It really sealed the deal on what was a very long and stressful recruiting process and it got me even more excited for the next four years,” shares Fida Mouwad’17, a signee.

IHA is proud of all the soccer players and wishes them luck at their future schools! IHA knows they will “kick it!”
