31 Student-Athletes Recognized on Senior Signing Day

On Wednesday, February 5, the Gonzaga Athletic Department held its annual Senior Signing Day Ceremony, when the school recognizes student-athletes who will play a sport in college at any level.

"It is one of my favorite days of the year,” says Athletic Director Joe Reyda, adding that the event is a wonderful opportunity for the student-athletes to thank their parents, coaches, teachers, and teammates. It's also a chance for Gonzaga to recognize the students for all of their hard work in both the classroom and on the playing field.
