For two Sullivan student-athletes, it was a day of celebration as Lexi Netherlain and Samuel Steimel both signed their national letters of intent to play sports at the next level.
Lexi Netherlain will attend Missouri S&T to join the Miner Volleyball program.
“The girls, the campus, they have the major I want and it was just a perfect fit. When I started playing volleyball when I was 8, I fell in love with it ever since. It’s a stress-reliever and I love it,” said Netherlain.
Samuel Steimel signed to play baseball with the Evansville Purple Aces.
“It’s a small school. I wasn’t looking to go to a big school. It’s private so it’s going to be a good education. When I went down there, I fell in love with the coaching staff and the scenery all there, the campus. I loved it from the get-go,” Steimel added.
