Four Plant athletes sign letters of intent

Saying he felt, “completely at home when I walked on the University of Florida campus,” Plant senior baseball player Pete Alonso made good on his feelings, signing a national letter of intent on Wednesday with the Gators in a ceremony at Plant.
Alonso, who hit .485 last season with six homers and 24 RBI last season, chose the Gators over the University of South Florida and Miami, but said the professional baseball draft in June could play into his ultimate decision.
“I just have to weigh my options,” Alonso said. “I’m in a good place right now.”
Alonso signed Wednesday with Plant schoolmates John Suskauer, a left-handed pitcher (North Florida), tennis player Blair Martin (Furman) and golfer Brad White (Guilford).
Martin helped Plant win back-to-back team tennis titles the past two years, and White finished second as an individual last month at the state high school golf tournament, shooting 1-under 143 at Deer Island Country Club.
