Four Lusher student athletes participated in this year’s annual College Signing Day. From the Nola.com article covering the event:
Ry-Anne Riley, who won the District 10-3A championship in the long jump last week, will be a member of the Xavier track and field team next year. Riley won the Class 3A outdoor state championship as a junior in the 400-meter dash, and was part of the Division II indoor 800-meter relay team that won a state title.
Classmate Hasani Salaam, a 6-foot middle blocker, also will attend Xavier, and she’ll be a member of the Gold Nuggets volleyball team. She was named to the All-District 9-III team three times.
Ryan Theyard, a 6-2, 172-pound cornerback, signed to play football at Jackson State, and Michael Strong will run track at UNO.
