Connor Sigrist, the 6-foot-7 forward for Greenbrier High School signed Wednesday to play basketball for Oglethorpe University in Atlanta.
“His confidence is building, his toughness is building, all those things where he’s going to peak as a good college basketball player,” Grenbrier head coach Casey Heckathorn said. “He’s just at the tip of the iceberg with his basketball potential and what he’s going to accomplish the next few years.”
Sigrist, who plans a pre-med course of study, said Oglethorpe’s academics, its location and the “winning tradition” at the school drew him there.
“I’ve talked to all their coaches,” he said. “They’re all great coaches. I’ll be in the weight room working out all the time. Hopefully I can get where people think I can be, because I know I can be a great player.”
GOLF: It’s been a good two days for Grovetown’s Danielle Reynolds.
On Tuesday, the senior golfer shot 88 in the Region 2-AAAAA golf regional and qualified for the state tournament as the low medalist on a non-competing team.
On Wednesday, she took care of her future as she signed her letter of intent to play golf for Division II Erskine College.
Reynolds visited the school 1 1/2 years ago and was sold.
“It was close-knit and small and it was just like a warm vibe and the golf program fits the way I play,” Reynolds said.
