There are scores of Kane County high school athletes who go on to play at some level of college each year, but for a small school like Rosary in Aurora to have eight students sign letters of intent in one class is something pretty special.

Eight Rosary athletes in the Class of 2018 have committed to continue their sport at the college level, signing National Letters of Intent at a Nov. 8 ceremony in the library.

  • Mackenzie Adkins of Geneva, daughter of Jacqueline and Douglas Adkins, will swim for the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado.
  • Brooke Delahanty of Sugar Grove, daughter of Katie and Ryan Delahanty, will run cross country and track for the Univ. of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.

  • Julianne Hutchison of Aurora, daughter of Jean and Jeffrey Hutchison, will play soccer for Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida.
