Signing day for Blake's ladies - FOX 13 News

Signing day for Blake's ladies

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

It's a first-of-its-kind signing day event at Tampa's Blake High School: Two of the school's female basketball players signed college letters of intent.

These types of signing day events are usually reserved for the guys.  But it's a big deal for the girls too, so the school decided to hold a special event for them as well.

The girls are excited to continue playing sports at the next level and to get the opportunity to go to college.

"It's a relief because we didn't know how I was going to college," Le'area Wilkerson said.  "Now it's settled.  It's amazing."

Le'area signed with South Georgia Technical Center, and Deauna Parker signed with the U.S. Army.
