Sumner pair sign with collegiate programs

Miele is heading to New Mexico State University while Wilson is going to Concordia University.

Sumner Spartan athletes McKenna Wilson (photo at left) and Mikaela Miele have signed formal letters-of-intent, locking in their sporting futures with out-of-state programs. Each celebrated with a signing ceremony the morning of May 2 at Sumner High School.

Wilson is headed Concordia University in Irvine, California, where she will compete for the Eagles in both cross country and track.

Miele, a swimmer, will join the Aggies program at New Mexico State University.

“Mikaela is a strong distance swimmer who likes to race the mile” Aggies coach Rick Pratt said. “What we were looking for was someone who had that distance swimmer mentality. She has the attitude and talent to be a great swimmer for us and I’m very excited to have her on our team.”
