Six AHS Student-Athletes Sign Letters of Intent

A record six Aubrey High School students signed letters of intent to continue their athletic careers this morning in the AHS gymnasium.

Six student-athletes in front of Aubrey backdrop Jessica Grimes (NCTC, softball), Kaia Saylor (TWU, volleyball), Laney Roos (LSU, softball), Lexie Roos (Northwestern State, softball), Jackson Fetters (Hesston Junior College, baseball) and Jaeger Self (Navarro Junior College, baseball) all signed letters of intent on National Signing Day.

Jessica Grimes was a first-team all-district player last year at third base for the Aubrey softball team. She was part of a team that won a district championship, a bi-district championship and an area championship last year.

“Jessica is a hard worker,” AHS softball coach Shon Ranton said. “She is quiet leader. She carries a good presence on the field and is a great defensive player. She has been very influential on our success over the last three years. I’m very proud of her.”

Kaia Saylor was a TGCA 4A All-State volleyball player last year. She accumulated over 1500 kills in her four-year career. She was part of a team that won a bi-district championship the last two years.

“Kaia has been a staple for this volleyball program for four years,” AHS volleyball Whitney Stout said. “She is going to be a huge hole to fill. We can’t wait to go watch her excel at TWU. I don’t have enough positive things to say about her and her character and her leadership.”

Laney Roos was named the district Co-MVP last year after a 20-3 record in the circle for the softball team. She was part of a team that won a district championship, a bi-district championship and an area championship last year.

“Laney is a very emotional player, and it matters to her so much to her that she excels and plays well,” Ranton said. “She plays with passion and it’s evident when you see her play. She has been very influential in our success. I’m proud of her, her dedication and her work ethic.”

Lexie Roos was named district catcher of the year as a junior with a .433 batting average. She was part of a team that won a district championship, a bi-district championship and an area championship last year.

“Lexie has been such a great captain on the field for us as the catcher,” Ranton said. “Her presence and controlling the infield is going to be hard to replace. I’m very proud of Lexie and what she has accomplished.”

Jaeger Self was a first-team all-district player for the baseball team last year. He helped lead the Chaparrals to a district championship and a third straight bi-district championship.

“Jaeger is a hard worker,” AHS head baseball coach Nate Henry said. “Everything he says and does on and off the field is genuine. He is a leader on the field, in the classroom and in the community for us. He represents what it means to be an Aubrey Chaparral. I’m extremely proud of him. I know he is going to do good things at the next level.”

Jackson Fetters was the district newcomer of the year last year for the baseball team. He helped lead the Chaparrals to a district championship and a third straight bi-district championship.

“Jackson is a tremendous character guy for us on and off the field,” AHS head baseball coach Nate Henry. “He is a hard worker and does well in the classroom. I’m very excited that he is going to have this opportunity to continue his academic and athletic career at the next level.”
