Baseball players Bubba Olivera and Trent Thompson and rower Amanda Esposito made a little history on Wednesday when they signed national letters of intent, becoming the first athletes to formally commit to colleges in the school’s palatial Straz Family Field House.
Olivera, an infielder who hit .315 last season with 13 RBI, signed with the University of North Florida, and Thompson, a pitcher with a 5-1 record and a 1.09 ERA last season, signed with Central Florida.
Esposito, a member on Berkeley’s volleyball team headed to Friday’s state semifinals in Kissimee, signed with Southern Methodist University.
Olivera and Thompson said they liked the idea of staying close to home and Esposito said she loved Texas when she went to visit Southern Methodist.
