The final National Letter of Intent signing day of the 2011-12 season was April 11 and two local athletes signed on the dotted line, including Lynnwood baseball player Blake Lord.

Lord signed his letter of intent during a ceremony in front of teammates and family at the Lynnwood High School library Wednesday night. Lord signed to play baseball at Saint Martin’s in Lacey next year.

“I’m just relieved that it’s over,” Lord said. “(Saint Martin’s) really fits me well. It’s close enough to home but also far enough that I can be independent.”

Lord, who led Wesco 3A in passing as the Royals quarterback in the fall, received an offer to play football and baseball at University of Puget Sound but opted to sign with SMU for just baseball.

Meadowdale girls basketball player Margreet Barhoum, an All-Area first team selection who led Wesco in scoring, announced Tuesday on Twitter that she committed to play at Montana State.

“Ladies and gentleman…I’M A BOBCAT!!!!!!! GO Montana State!!!!!!!!!!” Barhoum wrote on Twitter April 11.

She said she hopes to sign an official letter of intent soon.
