FORT ANN - There have been a lot of proud accomplishments on Fort Ann's sports fields over the years.

The small school have had lot of championships and big wins, but for Fort Ann, perhaps none bigger than what happened Thursday.

Seniors Kaitlyn Pecue and Joe Foran are both signing letters of intent to attend college on Division 1 athletic scholarships; Joe to Siena where he'll play baseball, and Kaitlyn to Baylor where she'll tumble for the competitive cheerleading team.

There are just 52 kids in Fort Ann's senior class, so that means a full four percent of them are receiving a Division One athletic scholarship."

The principal says they remember just one other athlete in the school's history to get a D-1 scholarship. To have two in the same year is a major source of pride.

The school is so proud, they held a big ceremony Thursday afternoon in which both students signed their letters of intent. The whole student body filled the auditorium.
