Three West Bladen Athletes Sign With Colleges

A trio of West Bladen athletes made their college commitments official Wednesday at a signing ceremony at the school with their friends and family present.

Hannah Arnett signed to play soccer at Guilford College. Nyzella Guions signed to attend Methodist University and become a cheerleader for the Monarchs. Kerron Washington signed to attend North Carolina Wesleyan and play football.

Arnett, a midfielder, had interest from Midway University in Kentucky and Cumberland University in Tennessee, but as her parents, Ricky and Cathy Arnett, noted Guilford is a lot closer.

Hannah Arnett intends to study exercise science and is excited about the study opportunities available at Guilford. “They have a 12-week semester and a program where you can spend three weeks abroad.”

Guions who was accompanied by her mother, Angela Guions-Blackwell, and stepfather, Donta Blackwell, intends to major in biology and shared that Methodist was her number one choice.

Washington was accompanied by a large group of family and friends including his mother, Donna Baldwin, and brother, Joseph Gore.

Baldwin said, “Rocky Mount is only three hours away and that is a good thing.”

Washington rushed for 161 yards and caught 19 passes for 215 yards during the 2018 season. Wesleyan is looking at him as a running back, and he intends to major in physical therapy.
