Marking the largest signing class in recent years, twenty-one St. Pius X student-athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLIs) during the 2019-2020 signing period.
Commitments ranging from lacrosse to cross country have occurred between National Signing Day and throughout the summer, with the latest commitment becoming official as recently as last week.
From Coast to Coast
While four athletes will remain in Texas to compete, the remaining signees are venturing to public, private, Christian and HBCU (Historically Black College and University) schools across the country. Campus locations include in Arizona, California, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Washington D.C. and Wisconsin.
Signing Day Ceremonies
On June 5, Panthers who made their decision after National Signing Day to play at the next level were invited to campus for a special signing ceremony. Due to COVID-19, attendance was limited to family, coaches, and a few friends. This event was coordinated in lieu of the cancelled Late Signing Day Ceremony originally scheduled for April.
Earlier in the year, six Panthers noted themselves as the first signees of the 2020 class. They signed their NLI’s during the school’s first school-wide National Signing Day Ceremony. The student body, along with parents, family, teachers, coaches and administrators, all gathered in the SPX auditorium to celebrate the amazing achievements of these student-athletes.
