Rylee Klomp and Brenna Robbins will compete in Division I athletics next season. Klomp, a state-champion swimmer, will head to Purdue next year, while Robbins will play basketball for Longwood University. Standout volleyball player Lauren Kenny also committed and will play for Mercyhurst University.

Klomp is a junior national qualifier and a two-time all-american. She swam anchor for the state-champion 200 medley relay team two years ago and was the state runner-up in the 50 and 100 free. She holds the school record in the 50 and 100 free and will swim the sprints for the Boilermakers.

Robbins, an all-region player, is another Division I basketball player in a long line of D-1 recruits at Mercyhurst. Longwood, a school in Farmville, Virginia, competes in the Big South conference.

Kenny was a two-year captain for the Mercyhurst Prep Lakers and is a two-time all-region selection. She plays with Club Chill in the offseason and is a middle hitter.
