SPORTS SUNDAY — Six Bulldogs to play in college

Three more Yellow Springs High School seniors signed commitment letters in recent weeks to bring the total number of college-bound athletes to six — more than 10 percent of this year’s graduating class.

Jake Fugate (football), Antone Truss (track) and Greg Felder Jr. (basketball) join earlier scholarship-winners Erika Chick (swimming), Elizabeth Malone (swimming) and Jacob Trumbull (soccer).

Even though there was only one YSHS varsity football game this year,  Fugate managed to score a spot on the Wilmington College team. Fugate played hard when he had the chance and never gave up, according to his junior high and high school coach, Craig McCann

“He’s gonna do great,” said Coach McCann. “He’s always been a beast and played with reckless abandon.”

Truss, a high jumper who narrowly missed a state appearance last year, will also play at Wilmington College. Last week Truss secured his spot in regionals in the 100- and 200-meter dash and the long jump, where he was the district champion.

Felder Jr., a district-15 all-star selected to the Metro Buckeye Conference’s first team will play at Clark State University next year.

Previously, Chick signed with Cornell University, Malone with St. Bonaventure University and Trumbull with Centre College.
