In a ceremony in the campus courtyard, Providence School seniors Ethan Banez and Jake Yonally signed letters of intent to play on intercollegiate soccer teams next year. Banez will play for the Westmont Warriors (NAIA) and Yonally will join the University of Chicago Maroons (NCAA Division III).

When introducing the two young men, Providence athletic director Steve Stokes noted that while Providence does not currently field a high school soccer team, it is a testament to the determination and skill of these athletes and the support of the school that they were prepared for admission to these competitive colleges and recruited to play on collegiate teams.
