Two Mission Prep student-athletes sign national letters of intent

Posted: Updated:

Two Mission Prep student-athletes signed their national letters of intent to continue their sports careers at the collegiate level on Thursday.

Kyle Continente signed to play football with Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. Continente had a fantastic senior year as the kicker for the royals, converting all PAT's except for two (they were blocked). He knocked down a 45-yard field goal during the second, the second longest of his high school career (hit 47-yards as a sophomore). Continente went on to be named first team PAC-8 and earned a selection to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star football game.

Aly Caldera signed to become a track & field athlete at Westmont in Santa Barbara. As a senior, Caldera led the Royals to qualify both relay teams to CIF finals for the first time in school history. The 4x400 relay team, which Caldera anchored, placed third after finishing with a school best 4:07.17.

Both student-athletes say their time as a Royal has prepared them to compete at the collegiate level.

"I think Mission just gives me all the building blocks I need to really be successful in everything I do," says Continente. "Especially football."

"I have had some of the best coaching that have pushed me outside of my zone both athletically and mentally," says Caldera. "They have prepared me for the best four years of my entire life that are coming up."
