On Wednesday, November 14 Princeton saw two senior student-athletes sign their National Letter of Intent to extend their athletic career at the collegiate level. Emily Roper will be attending Elon University in the fall to play softball, and Melia Watkins will be attending Goshen College in Indiana to play soccer.
Emily is a three sport varsity athlete at Princeton (basketball 4, softball 4, cross country 1). Roper has received all conference honors in each of her seaons in softball. Last season, Roper posted a .357 batting average and .451 on base percentage. She recorded 4 homeruns and knocked in 19 RBI's for the Vikings. For her career, Roper has a .368 batting average with 7 homeruns and 41 RBI's. Furthermore, she has helped the Lady Vikes' basketball team win three straight conference championships. In addition, she is an active member of the National Honor Society.
Melia is a two sport varsity athlete for the Vikings (Bowling 4, Soccer 1). She provided a great asset for Head Coach Katie Isaacs with her versatility on the field this season. Watkins' speed and strength both on offense and defense helped the Vikings be successful this fall. Melia is an active member of Student Council and a strong leader for the senior class.
Both Emily and Melia have continued to excel both athletically and academically. The hard work that both students display will allow them to become successful at the next level.
