By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) -  The applause was well deserved.  TK Gorman's class of 2010 is going down in history.  Five young ladies all signing division one or two scholarships. Rev. Jerome Milton says that's the most by a single class to ever sign from a Tyler school.

"We made history today as Coach Milton would say," said TK Gorman Senior Molly Richey.  "It makes me be proud to be apart of it. I know how the others feel. I know that they're some of my best friends. It's just a really happy moment for everybody."

Richey will take will take her soccer skills to Oklahoma.  Four of her friends will continue with track and field.  Racquel Satterwhite has signed with Dartmouth.  Hanna Krizmanic is headed to Dayton.  Grace Wagley signed with Angelo State and Brie Smith is going to be an Texas A&M Aggie.

"That's really exciting and I hope all of us are able to contribute," said Smith.  "We've been working hard so it's neat to see it finally pay off and be able to go to schools like this."

"It's an inspiration to everyone, girls and guys," said Satterwhite.  "It shows with hard work and dedication you can accomplish anything."

Hard work and dedication are nice.  Support can be just as important.  The school library was barely big enough to hold the Gorman family.

"It's definitely a family," said Satterwhite.  "Everyone was crying after the signing. We don't want to leave each other, but at the same time we're happy that we're all going to continue at the next level."
