Three Cambridge-South Dorchester athletes ink college Letters of Intent
CAMBRIDGE — Taking your game to a new level is on the mind of three CambridgeSouth Dorchester High senior athletes, having all recently signed National Letters of Intent to play college sports. Their decisions were announced at a press event on Wednesday at the school.
Micah Slacum, a standout in girls’ lacrosse, announced her decision to attend Lynchburg (Va.) College and continue to play there.
“She wanted to go to a school that was about four hours away,” Micah’s mom, Melissa, said. “And this school hit all the buckets on the list. So I knew she’d be going there.”
Pursuing a career in physical therapy, Micah Slacum sports a grade-point average of over 3.5 right now.
Micah Slacum, C-SD athletic director Dan Dobronz said, is a “great student; she is also an accomplished swimmer as well as lacrosse player. Very smart and very athletic.”
Tyler Harding’s baseball play has been top notch since before his very first day of high school ball for the Vikings, when he went 4 for 4 as a freshman and leadoff hitter.
Tyler, also called smart and a true athlete by Dobronz, played quarterback on varisty and JV for all four years of high school, and did the place kicking as well. His 12 point-after kicks in 2015 when his team scored 84 points in a win over Snow Hill, set a state high school record.
The 2017 All-Mid-Shore first-team standout hasn’t slackened his pace; he’ll continue to carry the big stick as a player for Salisbury University. Right now, he’s not sure of his major.
Harding’s football teammate, Jimmy Schulze, was a reliable go-to receiver the last three years on varsity. Schulze, who’s also on the fence about his major, will be starting classes, along with football practices, at Stevenson University, located just north of Baltimore, this fall.
