One week ago on November 8th, in the Lake Forest High School cafeteria, six LFHS student-athletes signed their National Letter of Intent (NLI) to continue both their academic and athletic careers at five different Division 1 programs. It is estimated that fewer than 2% of high school athletes (1 in 57) go on to play at NCAA Division I schools. The sports represented were Rowing, Sailing, Field Hockey, Cross Country, and Lacrosse.

Senior Mary Carter signed her NLI to continue her sailing career down south at Tulane University. Tulane currently is the #12 ranked sailing team in the country. 

Twins Ava & Stella Fox signed to take their rowing talents to Ann Arbor, MI where they will continue their athletic careers at the University of Michigan. The two will look to be a part of another successful season for Michigan following the team’s win at the Big Ten championships last year.

Varsity Field Hockey Captain Katherine Malloy will be attending Georgetown University next year. Malloy committed in Sept. 2022 and was recently one of four Lake Forest Field Hockey players to earn IHSA All State honors.

Senior Lucy Schlautenhaufen signed her NLI to continue her cross country career at the University of Richmond. The future spider recently earned All-State Honors in the IHSA Class 2A State meet after placing 22nd.

Rounding out the November 8th signing class was senior Augie Silver. Silver is a three year member of the Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team and has been a key contributor to their success since being put on the team. Silver will continue his athletic career at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. 

LFHS Athletic Director Tim Burkhalter addressed and greeted each player, praising them, their parents, and the community for their unwavering support of the athletes’ careers. The crowd erupted in cheers after each signing to honor outstanding high school sporting careers.

Smiles larger than life could be seen across each of the athletes faces following the signing of their NLI’s. It truly was a time where the athletes could see all their hard work pay off; best of luck to these six athletes as they continue their athletic careers at the next level!
