For the first time in Bronco history, Montini Catholic 'virtually' congratulated thirteen outstanding senior Broncos on their commitments to continue their academic and athletic pursuits at the collegiate level on National Sports Signing Day.  Athletes and their families gathered around their computers to celebrate and congratulate one another via a unique Zoom video conference (a format students and parents alike have become very familiar with during the shutdown this past month). 

"Today's thirteen athletes, representing eight sports, join 26 others from our Class of 2020 who have committed to play sports at the collegiate level," said President Jim Segredo as he greeted invitees, along with Principal Kevin Beirne and Athletic Director, Tom Lentine.  Coaches also joined in the conference to congratulate each athlete.
