The Times is recognizing Carroll County’s high school athletes who have made college commitments during the 2019-20 school year.

Some of the county’s high schools recently took to social media to recognize their college-bound athletes, since spring signing day ceremonies were wiped out because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s take a look at them, continuing with Westminster High School.

The Owls’ football team won a Carroll County Athletic League title in the fall, and advanced to the Class 3A state quarterfinals. Five players from the 2019 roster have college plans ― Patrick Almony (Bridgewater), Ben Flowers (Salisbury), Joey Long (Bridgewater), Tre Price (Salisbury), Evan Warren (Navy).

Also in the fall, Westminster’s CCAL champion volleyball team made it back to the 3A state tournament backed by four-time Times Player of the Year Jilliene Widener. She’s bound for Brown University, and two of her Owls teammates also have college volleyball plans in Emily Stauder (Millersville) and Kasey Thomas (Lebanon Valley College).

Last spring, the Owls’ boys and girls lacrosse teams completed a sweep at the 3A state championship games for a second straight season. Westminster’s 2020 boys roster includes four college-bound players in twins Conner Covey and Logan Covey (both headed to Marist), Evan Park (Newberry College), and Nick Wingo (McDaniel).

Meanwhile, Westminster’s girls have Faith Chmielewski (Marquette), Sophie Fischer (Butler), Madison Mills (Winthrop), Katie Pettine (Kent State), and Chloe Sedlar (Hofstra).
