Signing day just kind of got lost in the mix at Broomfield.

The Eagles have been in the midst of a state title run in the Class 5A state soccer tournament and host a state quarterfinal football game on Saturday.

Wednesday’s national signing day — which the Eagles and athletic secretary Charlene Orvis do better than any other school (I guarantee you) — was placed on the backburner.

But it doesn’t mean the Eagles didn’t have a trio of signees make it official. Two of girls basketball coach Mike Croell’s starting five, Callie Kaiser and Nicole Lehrer, signed on the dotted line without all the fanfare that usually surrounds the day.

Kaiser made it official to Colorado State and Lehrer finalized her commitment to Colorado Christian.

“We are eventually going to have our signing party for everybody,” Croell said. “And there are still a couple more kids that are kind of wavering and haven’t decided yet, so we decided to put it off a month or so and try and get everybody at once.”

Kaiser and Lehrer likely won’t be the last two on the team to sign either. Katie Stirling will likely make her decision as the season wears on. Also juniors Brenna Chase and Brenna Fankell will also be heavily recruited out of the class of 2016.

Regan VandePol, who recently finished 20th at the state cross country meet in Colorado Springs, has also finalized her commitment to run both track and cross country for the Cowboys at the University of Wyoming.
