While signing days are big throughout the school year in the Tri-State, November and February are considered prime time. And as is usually case, nobody does it bigger than Castle High School. However, Wednesday afternoon, the Knights outdid themselves.

This afternoon, the Knights had eleven student-athletes sign on the dotted line, which is a record for the school.

Soccer star Abigail Rhoutsong will take her considerable talents down the Lloyd Expressway to the University of Southern Indiana.

State qualifying pole-vaulter Parker Speth will be a Sycamore, after inking a commitment to Indiana State University.

Softball player Madison Beckhart is headed to John A. Logan College of Carterville, Illinois, while teammate Jackie Lis is headed to Carbondale to play for the Salukis of Southern Illinois.

The state finalist volleyball squad got three signees today ... With Keira Moore headed to USI, while Olivia Patton is headed to Kentucky Wesleyan College, and teammate Alyssa Burglund signing on at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois.

On the baseball diamond, Jacob Barrett will be a Racer, signing with Murray State.

In the pool, Colton Tang, a captain on the Castle swim team is set to become a member of USI's new program after committing to the Screaming Eagles.

And finally in lacrosse, Hannah Eilert signed to continue her career at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, while Troon Houlton will play for the Blue Hens of the University of Delaware.

"This is the biggest one we've ever had," says Castle Athletic Director Brandon Taylor. "I think the biggest one before that, we had eight student-athletes. We do multiple a year. But this just speaks to this senior class. What great athletes, what great kids they are. The colleges want them to come and play for their program. It's not just one individual sport. We've got kids that cover six or seven sports here. It's really a testament too not a specific team but Castle athletics as a whole."

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
