The gym of the Leonard Family Athletic Center was filled with friends, family, teachers, and coaches as four Nighthawks officially announced to the Cincinnati Country Day School community that they have officially committed to continue their athletic careers at the collegiate level.
Davis Campbell (Liberty Township) will attend the University of Evansville to play baseball; Parker Corbin (Loveland) will attend the University of Maryland to play baseball; Piper Farris (New Richmond) will attend East Carolina University to play soccer; and Sydney Hardesty (Loveland) will attend the University of Toledo to play soccer. All four athletes will be playing at the Division-1 level at their respective schools.
“It is a day of achievement for these student-athletes and their families,” says Dennis Coyle, athletic director. “I want to congratulate each of you and your families on this accomplishment. You have made your teams better and your programs better, not just because you are good athletes, but because you are good people.”
When Corbin was asked about how Country Day has prepared him for his next adventure, he said, “Country Day taught me how to interact with people from a variety of backgrounds. I also learned skills like time management that will not only help me in college but also in the workforce.”
He was also very appreciative and grateful for the time he spent at Country Day.
“I like how tight-knit the community at Country Day is. I really enjoyed playing at a smaller school because I got to form such special bonds with my teammates. The memories I made here will definitely last a lifetime.”
The next athletics signing day will take place on February 7, 2024, at 12 p.m. in the gym of the Leonard Family Athletic Center.
