Yesterday, three Bellwood-Antis seniors officially signed to play college sports, all for their tremendous efforts in track and field. 

Dylan Andrews, Kamden Bailor, and Lydia Worthing all signed their letters at a ceremony held in the high school media center.

Dylan signed to Saint Francis University, where he will further his pole vaulting career for the next four years. He had announced his commitment last week.

Dylan has been outstanding for B-A, even though he’s only been pole vaulting since 10th grade, after his freshman season was cut short due to COVID. He finished third at District in 2022 and advanced to the PIAA meet.

Kamden Bailor signed to Westminster College where he will be furthering his career in hurdling. Just like Lydia and Dylan, Kamden has been a top member of the B-A track team, helping lead the team to many victories as a letter-winning runner.

“It was great to see both Kamden and Dylan sign with their college,” said Coach Nick Lovrich.  “Both of them have steadily improved each year throughout their career and we are expecting them to have big years this season.  I think once they become full time track athletes the sky is the limit for them.  We are very proud of all their achievements and look forward to seeing what they do in their future!”

Lydia will attending Bloomsburg University, where she will not only continue her track career as a pole vaulter but also her volleyball career. She was a PIAA qualifier in the pole vault the last two years, as well as a standout on the volleyball and girls basketball teams.

“Lydia is a hardworking kid that sets goals and works hard to achieve them,” said volleyball coach Sophie Damiano. “I know she’s going to do great things for the Bloomsburg volleyball program, and I’m excited to watch her play at the next level.”

For her part, Worthing, who has always been a three-sport athlete, is looking forward to limiting her focus, even it’s just by one sport.

“I’m excited to see if I can handle it,” said Worthing. “I’m more excited to see how I’ll do just focusing on those two sports individually.”
