APTOS — Three Aptos Mariners committed to their respective universities on Wednesday morning at Aptos High School.
Rita McCreesh signed with the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington.
She was a four-year varsity player in softball and earned All-Santa Cruz Coastal Athletic League honors in her sophomore year.
Her sophomore and freshman year she helped the Mariners win two SCCAL titles.
Bryan Bucher will be attending Fresno Pacific University.
Bucher spent two seasons on the varsity baseball team, and last season he was named to the All-SCCAL team to go along with a league title.
This year Bucher was one of the few seniors on the youthful Mariners team that went just 5-7 in league play. Despite the record they still made a nice run through the SCCAL end of season tournament, knocking out the top seeded St. Francis Sharks.
Shannon Cotton was a three-year varsity volleyball player and earned All-League honors her senior year.
She’ll be playing next year at Chico State University. Her sophomore and junior year the Mariners brought home SCCAL titles, and the Mariners made runs in Central Coast Section Playoffs in all three of Cotton’s varsity years.
