Youngman, Lakes Sign Letters of Intent


Peoria Manual seniors AJ Youngman and Mary Lakes made their college choices official Monday, each signing Division I letters of intent.

Youngman signed with Eastern Kentucky, fulfilling a lifelong dream. “I’ve dreamed about this since I was two or three years old,” he said. “This is the day I wanted. It got me choked up a little bit.”

Mary Lakes, a standout center, will play college ball in the Big 12 at Kansas State. “Started from the bottom,” Lakes said. “It feels really good to be able to go to college, and go to a good college, a D-I college.”

Lakes said she will study psychology and child development, while Youngman plans to study business at EKU.
