Four Columbus North seniors finalize college plans

        Four Columbus North High School seniors put pens to paper Wednesday (Feb. 3) to finalize their commitments for college athletics and academics.
        Two football players and one athlete each in men's soccer and men's cross country/track took part in a signing ceremony on Wednesday (Feb. 3) in the Columbus North athletic conference room.
        Student-athletes signing were football players Alex Algee (University of Indianapolis) and Drew Schoeberl (Columbia University), soccer player Ty Bentham (Fredonia State, N.Y.) and runner Ben Rankin (Grace College).
        These are the seventh through 10th athletes in the CNHS Class of 2016 to sign letters of intent. Six athletes signed letters in November. Additional Columbus North seniors are expected to do so in ceremony to be held April.
        More information about the athletes who took part in Wednesday's ceremony and their respective college choices follows.
        >> Alex Algee, football, Indianapolis: The 6-1, 185-pound Algee was a big-play producer as a wide receiver and in the return game. He totaled 40 receptions for 813 yards and nine touchdowns. He also added a 28.1 average on 16 kickoff returns. Algee will join an Indianapolis program that went 10-2 last season and reached the NCAA Division II postseason.
        >> Ty Bentham, soccer, Fredonia State (N.Y.): Bentham, a goalkeeper, posted a 1.15 goals against average in helping the Bull Dogs to a 7-7-3 record last fall. That came after a junior season where he notched a 0.42 GAA when Columbus North went 14-4-2. Bentham joins a Blue Devils' program that went 3-12-3 while competing at the NCAA Division III level. 
        >> Ben Rankin, cross country/track, Grace College: Rankin was selected the Columbus North most valuable athlete in cross country last fall after placing 49th at the IHSAA state meet with a time of 16 minutes, 10.4 seconds.

        >> Drew Schoeberl, football, Columbia University (N.Y.): The 6-5, 250-pound Schoeberl was a strong blocker and caught eight passes for 70 yards while playing tight end.
