Student-athletes in the West Columbia/Cayce area were recognized Wednesday for signing with the college or university of their choice.

It was the traditional National Signing Day as those who opted not to sign early made their commitments official.

Airport High School will hold its signing day on Tuesday with Jesse Ray Hoover (golf – USC/Sumter) and Victoria Powell (acrobat/tumbling – Limestone University).

The next National Signing Day will be in April for spring sports.
