For the second time this school year, Bonney Lake High School honored two student athletes who have both signed letters of intent to Bellevue College.

In a lunch time ceremony, Kash Koltermann and Brody Fitzsimmons were recognized.

Koltermann and Fitzsimmons have both signed two year deals with Bellevue. Koltermann is a pitcher for the Panthers and Fitzsimmons plays for the Bonney Lake soccer team.

Koltermann hopes to transfer to Arizona State after his two years are up.

Fitzsimmons would like to stay local and transfer to the University of Washington.

Koltermann said he picked Bellevue College because they have a tradition of sending players to D1 schools after their time at Bellevue.

“It is a bigger two year school, you get a four year feel,” he said.

Fitzsimmons said the reason he chose Bellevue is because it is fairly close to home.

“It is a good place to start the college experience,” Fitzsimmons said.

Bonney Lake practice starts the first week of March.

The baseball season starts Wednesday, March 26 with a home game against Peninsula. And the Panthers soccer season starts with a rivalry match up against the Spartans on Tuesday, March 18 at Bonney Lake.
