East Jessamine’s Matt Hall signed with Centre College last month.
Hall’s signing came on the same day he competed in the state track championships — May 18.
“I’m happy to finally get it done,” Hall said. “I really felt like Centre was the place for me.”
He signed with the Colonels earlier in the morning and by the afternoon he was competing in Louisville. Hall competed in the 4x800-meter relay and the 800-meter run. He placed first in the region in the 800-meter.
“I’m really looking forward to running at Centre and going to school there,” Hall said.
Hall said he liked the class sizes and academics that Centre can offer and everything was a fit for him.
The school also offers a strong track program and won the SCAC¿conference this past spring.
He plans on studying chemical engineering.
