When it came to selecting a university to continue her stellar cross-country/track and field career, Oak Park and River Forest High School senior Josephine Welin had one thing in mind: comfort.

“I really loved the campus and felt I would be happiest and most successful there,” she said after signing her letter of intent with the University of Washington during a Signing Day ceremony held in the OPRF board room Nov. 16.

Welin was among seven Huskie senior student-athletes to sign their letters of intent to play collegiately. Here is the complete list:

  • David Andolina, Lehigh University, baseball
  • Cate Barkdoll, Wooster College, field hockey and softball
  • Justin Mullins, Denver University, basketball
  • Tiala Ortega, DePauw University, field hockey
  • Teagan Osga, Northeastern University, swimming
  • Halle Rigden, Centre College, field hockey
  • Josephine Welin, University of Washington, cross-country/track and field
