On National Signing Day, February 6, Cotter Schools’ seniors Laken Macal and Wil Modjeski signed their letters of intent to compete in collegiate athletics next year.
Laken — a six-foot, three-inch tightend/linebacker for the Ramblers — signed his letter of intent to play football at the University of Wisconsin-Stout next season. UW-Stout, a DIII college and member of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC), is located in Menomonie, Wis. Besides football, Laken was drawn to UW-Stout for its polytechnic program and the local fishing hot spots. He loves to fish and plans to major in engineering. It was a perfect fit!
Modjeski, Cotter’s AAA award winner and a track and cross-country runner, signed his letter of intent to run track at the University of Sioux Falls (USF) in South Dakota. USF is a DII university and member of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Modjeski was drawn to USF for the location, programs, and the chance to run at the collegiate level. He plans to major in business administration, which is offered as a “3+1” at USF. That means he can complete his undergraduate degree and his Master’s of Business Administration in four years.
