Casti Celebrates Two Student-Athletes at Signing Day!

It was a wonderful morning at Castilleja, as we had the chance to hold one of the most beloved traditions of Castilleja Athletics – Signing Day! Two incredible Casti seniors will be taking their athletic talents to the collegiate level next year, and the Castilleja campus came alive to celebrate them on Friday morning. Madeleine P. will be diving at Penn next year, and Amanda K. will be playing soccer for Pomona – INCREDIBLE JOB!
