    On Wednesday, six Pocomoke High school seniors were recognized for deciding to continue their academic and athletic careers at the collegiate level.

    Brayden Hurley has committed to University of Maryland Eastern Shore to continue his baseball career. Hurley plans to help the team as a pitcher and third baseman.

    “I think it will be very fun and I can’t wait to see what it will have in store for me, I think it will be a very good experience because I will really have to push myself,” said Hurley.

    Chris Sanders, another senior on the baseball team, also plans to further his career at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Sanders plans on pushing himself to be a better player to help the team in any way he can. He plans on working hard over the summer and fall to prepare himself for next year’s baseball season. Sanders plans on majoring in criminal justice.

    Kaikane Busquets has been one of Pocomoke High School’s top swimmers the past few years. Kaikane has been competitively swimming most of his life. He was recruited to swim at Salisbury University. Busquets is psyched to continue swimming while majoring in computer science.

    At Pocomoke, soccer has always been a big sport. Noah Brittingham, a forward on the soccer team and one of the leading goal scorers, is continuing his love for the game at Salisbury University. Brittingham has decided to major in business.

    McKenzie Mitchell and Samantha Dingus, two captains from the field hockey team, have both decided to continue their field hockey careers. Mitchell has committed to play at Salisbury University while majoring in exercise science.

    “I am very excited to be able to continue playing the sport that I love,” said Mitchell.

    Dingus has decided to follow her dreams in Occupational Therapy at Wesley College while playing field hockey.

     “I am super psyched to continue playing next year, I think it will be a good experience, I know I will really have to push myself but I think it will be good for me,” said Dingus.

    All six of these seniors have a bright future ahead of them, they have represented Pocomoke well and will all continue to be successful athletes and students.
