Congratulations to Ashton, Katharine and Jordan.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte Country Day School held its early signing day Wednesday morning as three student-athletes signed their National Letters of Intent. Katarine Franz signed to play volleyball for Davidson College, Jordan Greene signed to play baseball for Clemson and Ashton Poole signed to play golf for Virginia.

Katharine, who is the only athlete to have already finish her senior season, brought home another state championship for the Bucs.

When asked why she chose to stay close to home and attend Davidson she simply said, “It was the best option with the coaching staff and fellow players. I love them all so much already and they’re such great people, but academics were my main concern.”

Katharine knows she wants to look into science but when asked about her major she said, “I’m undecided at the moment.”

Jordan Greene was the second athlete to sign his papers. Jordan chose Clemson over a plethora of colleges.

Jordan spoke just after signing his NLI stating, “It took eight other guys to help make this happen, I wouldn’t be where I am without them.”

Jordan continued, “I really like the coaching staff and the players. There is a really good legacy down there and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Ashton Poole was the first one to sign stating he chose Virginia because, “It’s a perfect academic fit. It’s where my mom went and I really like the golf program. The facilities are top notch and they’re a top 10 program that will hopefully take me to the next level.”

On what Ashton will study while in Charlottesville, “Media Studies. I do want to look into the financial side of things because that’s what my dad does, but for now… Media Studies.”

Congratulations to Ashton, Katharine and Jordan.
