Five Willamette senior student-athletes have signed letters of intent to continue competing in college.
Ashley Guldager signed to play soccer at Linfield, while Katlyn Martinez agreed to play for George Fox. The two longtime friends and soccer teammates will be opponents next season.
Griffin Jeskey’s senior season is still to come in track and field, but he’s signed to run at Oregon Tech.
And football players Bryce Goggin and Bradley Mondo have signed to play at perennial national contender Southern Oregon.

A $332,000 state grant will allow Bethel 8th graders to take CTE courses in Robotics, Culinary Arts and Digital Design.
CTE (Career Technical Education) is a recognized strength in Bethel School District at the high school level.
Beginning next fall 8th graders will be able to take after school classes that feed directly into established CTE courses at Willamette High School.
Called CTE Cruise, the middle school courses will also help attract more girls to CTE programs in which they have traditionally been underrepresented.
Bethel is among only a handful of districts to be awarded this grant money from the state.
In addition, Measure 98 CTE funds will be used to expand the 10 CTE classes that Bethel already offers at the high school level.
The Bethel Education Foundation (BEF) is now accepting proposals for grants up to $1,500.
The BEF was formed in 2009 by a group of active Bethel parents. It has since given away more than $160,000 in grants for innovative, engaging and effective programs that enhance the quality of education for students in Bethel School District.
This year the City of Eugene has provided an additional $10,000 in funding specifically for Waste Prevention and Composting Education proposals.
The submission due date is the end of the day Thursday, October 26th, and the BEF plans to award the grants before Thanksgiving break so funded projects can be initiated as soon as possible for Bethel students.
