Many of the athletes that are moving on to the college level have played their sport for most of their life, and they would agree that the hard work they have put in is finally paying off.

Though the names above have committed or signed to playing college sports, there are many other seniors that will be joining club teams, or trying out for certain sports. Also there are a few seniors that will try to walk on to teams once they get to college.

The 2016 senior class has set high standards, and for many years, Granville has produced great athletes that have competed well in college. The underclassmen at Granville High School have already had a crucial role on varsity teams, and will carry the expectations that have already been set.
