MOBILE, Alabama - Three St. Luke's athletes have decided on their college futures.
 
Baseball player Drew Dismukes and volleyball player Catherine Milwee recently signed, as Dismukes signed with Faulkner State Community College and Milwee signed with Spring Hill College.
 
In addition, basketball player Jewel Hill, who will lead her team in the Class 1A South Regional in Dothan this week, also has committed to Spring Hill. Milwee and Hill are the first two female athletes from St. Luke's to sign, or in Hill's case at this point commit, to colleges.

In all, the school - which is in just its fourth year of varsity athletics - has had 11 players sign in the last two years - the only years the Wildcats have had graduating classes.
 
"Obviously, we are very happy having our first two female athletic signees," athletic director and head baseball coach Tim Becker said. "This is a great thing for our kids and a great motivator for young people as well because they can see that big things can happen here if you work hard and prepare."
 
Dismukes, the third St. Luke's baseball player to sign a college scholarship, is a pitcher and outfielder for the defending Class 1A state champs.
 
A year ago, he hit .387 with three home runs and 48 RBIs. He has a career batting average of .422 with 122 RBIs. He also had six wins on the mounds last year.
 
"Drew has a great demeanor for the game of baseball," Becker said. "He is a young man who pulls 100 percent for his teammates.  He is also a player that you want at the plate in a clutch situation, because of his ability to drive in runs."

Milwee has been a defensive specialist for coach Tammy Richardson's volleyball team.
 
From her libero spot, she served 88 percent a year ago with 55 aces and 165 digs.
 
"Catherine's tenacity is one of the major contributors that helped lead her team to the final four as well as provide her the opportunity to play at the next level," Richardson said. "She is a focused player who demands a lot of herself and her teammates. It will be a joy to watch her succeed both on and off the court while she pursues her Spring Hill endeavors."
 
Hill, a 5-foot-10 guard, has St. Luke's in the South Regional for the second straight season. She is averaging 16.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.3 steals and 3 assists per game.
 
A year ago, she was a second-team All-State selection by the Alabama Sports Writers Association and a first-team Coastal-Alabama All-Region pick by the Press-Register.
 
"Jewel has chosen to continue her basketball career at Spring Hill College, which is an outstanding fit for her, allowing her to play the game she loves while obtaining a degree from a reputable four year college which has always been her main focus," St. Luke's coach Christine Zoghby said. "She is an extremely talented basketball player with great knowledge for the game. Jewel is the type of player every coach wants to have, completely dedicated to her team and constantly striving to improve her game and help those around her. We are thrilled that we will get to see Jewel play in Mobile for the next four years."
 
Zoghby, Hill and the St. Luke's girls will play Brantley at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Dothan Civic Center. The Bulldogs ended the Wildcats' season in the regional tourney last year.
