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.
