Yes, indeed, joy abounded early Wednesday as 13 Elk Grove Unified student/athletes inked their National Letter of Intent in a special ceremony at the Trigg Building. Their years of hard work in their respective sport paid off with the signing of their paperwork indicating their intent to play at the next level. 

Signees at later ceremonies Wednesday included Sheldon softball player Juju Malana with Union College and Elk Grove softball player Lauren Johnson with Averett University.
